abstract

  • SummaryFour patients with neurapraxic lesions are described; in spite of the absence of impulse activity in muscle fibers no other signs of denervation could be detected. These observations are interpreted as indirect evidence for the role o f a non-impulsive (axoplasmic flow) system in certain trophic phenomena. The relationship of the present findings to the spectrum of neuropathic lesions is considered.
