    Abstract

    A single cuff electrode with multiple-contacts permits fibre selective recording from peripheral nerves. This has been demonstrated in frog nerve in vitro and earth worm before. In this paper we apply this method successfully to the peripheral median nerve of pig in vivo. Compound action potentials (CAPs) were electrically excited at the median nerve close to the wrist of the forelimb. The CAPs were recorded by a recording nerve cuff located proximal to the stimulation cuff. Applying simple mathematical routines allowed for generating a profile of nerve fibre activation as a function of propagation velocity.
