  • Assessment of nerve recovery

    Shalom to all netters

    We need some urgent help in the following, and could not find anything
    useful in the literature available to us.
    We are looking into peripheral nerve regenerayion following severe
    damage and the effect of various treatments. The model is the sciatic
    nerve in rats. I am looking for a simple but reliable and acceptable
    method to assess mechanically / visually the recovery. I was trying to
    sqeeze the mid-finger while recording the foot movement using video, but
    it was too slow (I don't have high speed video). Of course we are
    running EMG and histologic tests as well, but the mechanical aspect is
    my project.
    I wonder if anyone came across any simple solution to this question.
    I'll send a summary of responses if I find you are interested in it.
    Thank you
