    If you have correctly identified the sciatic nerve the leg muscles should twitch violently when you tighten the knot on the tread. Sever the nerve proximal (towards the body of the frog) to the tie, then lay the nerve along the gastrocnemius muscle. Wet the nerve and muscle with a few drops of Ringer's solution. PoUitzer (J. Phj^siol. 7, p. , ) stated that a large dose of curari ( c.c. i p.c.) caused a decrease in the excitability of the nerve-free end of the sartorius of the frog, as well as in the part containing nerve endings, and Lapicque (C.R. Soc. Biol.

    The frog schiatic nerve gives a graded response because the nerve is a bundle of axons and not a single axon (thus it does not show the all or none . On isolated sciatic nerve preparations, it was found that psi xenon or 80 psi nitrous oxide exerted a slight depressing effect on nerve excitability. As the Pxe or P n 2 o increased, nerve excitability decreased at a more rapid rate. The decreased nerve excitability .

The excitability of the severed sciatic nerve, expectedly, depends strongly on the time course of Wallerian degeneration. When frogs were kept at room temperature, the nerve excitability remained normal for only about days, due to the faster Wallerian degeneration; whereas at 4 degrees C it was maintained for more than 84 days, as long as Cited by: Space distribution of excitability in the frog's sciatic nerve stimulated by slot electrodes.

Excitability properties of isolated frog and rat sciatic nerve fibers were examined using intra-axonal and sucrose-gap recording techniques. Paired stimulation experiments on rat myelinated fibers indicate that a small proportion (11%;n = 84) of these axons demonstrate decreased threshold indicative of a supernormal contrast, 81% (n = 23) of frog.

Excised sciatic nerves of frogs,Rana esculenta, (including the 8th and 9th pair of spinal roots) were stimulated with long rectangular currents at the roots and at several sites throughout the nerve repetitive activity which resulted from the stimulation was recorded from isolated single myelinated nerve fibres belonging to peripheral nerve branches.

Previous studies have shown that pulsed application of ultrasound waves to an excised frog sciatic nerve can modulate its excitability [7, 8].

However, the. Find and dissect the frog sciatic nerve for placement in a nerve chamber. Describe the dissection of the frog sciatic nerve. Explain the procedure and significance of a single and double pith of the frog.

Introduction. The interior of a neuron at rest is negatively charged with respect to its exterior. As a peripheral nerve model for studies of the SMF effects, we have investigated whether exposure of in vitro frog sciatic nerve fibers to moderate-intensity gradient SMF.

Frog sciatic nerves show a continuing addition of new myelinated and nonmyelinated fibers with body growth. Along with increases in fiber number there are also marked changes in axon calibers and in the relative thickness of the myelin sheaths.

Our data show that frog nerves, as opposed to mammalian nerves, are composed of fibers of different ages, stages of growth and stages of. Stimulation Recording in Frog Sciatic Nerve Methods: Dissection of the Gastrocnemius Muscle and the Sciatic Nerve In this experiment the frog sciatic nerve was used; the frogs were carefully handled and deeply anesthetized in order to be permanently unconscious.

Pithing was used to destroy the brain pain center making the frog insensitive to pain.

Compound action potentials: frog sciatic nerve – lab assignment I. Data analysis A. Determination of threshold voltage and maximum CAP amplitude From your data trace, use the waveform cursor to measure CAP amplitude at each stimulus voltage (use channel 1).

The cursor information is displayed in the upper right of the Scope Application window. In vitro, nerve vitality can be described in terms of the ability of a nerve trunk to sustain a high firing rate over prolonged periods without suffering appre-ciable changes in excitability.

Under usual experimental conditions an excised nerve, such as the frog sciatic, is capable of firing about to spikes (over. The sciatic nerve was then dissected in less than 3 min in a modification of the technique described by Popitz et al.

21 The portion of the sciatic nerve removed was located between the region 10 mm proximal to the sciatic notch and the popliteal fossa.

The excised portion of the sciatic nerve was frozen in less than 5 s on a flat surface of. In this experiment, you will stimulate the frog's sciatic nerve, activating a large number of individual nerve fibres simultaneously, and record the resulting aggregate electrical activity, i.e., the Compound Action Potential (CAP).

The particular objectives are to: Study the characteristics of the frog's sciatic nerve CAP. Muscle Lab. isolated frog muscle could be made to contract when the sciatic nerve was irritated with a metal object, conducted the first muscle experiments between and Later, between Luigi Galvani determined that frog muscle responded to electrical currents.

Abnormal conditions of nerve excitability, coupled with a disturbance of the balance of metabolic activity, both in the nerve itself and in the parts to which it is ultimately dis- tributed, together with an alteration in the conveyance of sensory impressions, and pain, may be tabulated briefly as amongst the most prominent evidences of sciatic.O free saline produces a return of excitability but perfusion with oxygenated saline causes far more.
