In Vivo Electrophysiological Measurement of Compound Muscle Action Potential from the Forelimbs in Mouse Models of Motor Neuron Degeneration Eveliina Pollari1,2, Robert Prior1,2, Wim Robberecht1,2,3, Philip Van Damme1,2,3, Ludo Van Den Bosch1,2 1Department of Neurosciences, Experimental Neurology, KU Leuven - University of Leuven, 2Center for Brain & Disease Research, Laboratory of Neurobiology, VIB, 3Department of Neurology, University Hospitals Leuven The measurement of nerve conduction is a useful tool to assess mouse models of neurodegeneration but it is frequently only applied to stimulate the sciatic nerve in hindlimbs. Here, we describe a technique to measure compound muscle action potential (CMAP) in vivo in the mouse forelimb muscles innervated by the brachial plexus.
