33 34 neurological investigation Nerve conduction studies and electromyography Nerve conduction studies Stimulation (S) Recording Nerve conduction studies (NCS) can be used to study the motor and sensory function of the large myelinated fibres of selected accessible nerves. The main measurements are of conduction velocity and amplitude. (R) ce Distan Sensory studies Sensory nerves are studied by stimulating the nerve at one point along it, for example the index finger, and recording at a distant site along the nerve, for example the median aspect of the wrist (Fig.
