  • study, nerve conduction.  // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p2093 

    A definition of the term "study, nerve conduction" is presented. It refers to an electrodiagnostic test used to determine whether the conduction of impulses along specific nerves is normal or pathologically slowed. In the test an electrical shock is given to a nerve that controls a particular...
