    Abstract

    Force recruitment cumes have been recorded for the rat extensor digitorum longus muscle (EDL) using monopolar stimulation with intraneural wire electrodes. The recruitment curves vary with the position of the electrode in
    the nerve This has implications when intraneural stimulation techniques are used to precisely control muscle force. To assess this effect, two parameters were extracted for each recruitment cuwe: the threshold current and the slnpe in the low-farce range. When these experimental parameters are compared with the same parameters resulting from simulated recruitment curves, it becomes clear that the low density of nodes of Ranvier and the degree of clustering of nerve fibers are of major importance for the recruitment behavior resulting from intraneural stimulation. It is also shown that the external medium conductivity σe, is an important parameter influencing the recruitment behavior.
