    Abstract

    The response of fibers in the vagal nerve, evoked by electrical stimulation, has been studied in both animals and humans. These compound action potentials (CAPs) consist of components coming from thick, myelinated fibers to thin, unmyelinated fibers. In our study, the possibility is addressed of an indirect component in the CAP which is involved in reflexive control. By using multiple, consecutive electrode sites along the cervical vagal nerve, both the direction and the velocity along the nerve of the CAPs can be analyzed. This information can be used to distinguish direct from indirect components. In this way an indirect component was revealed.
