Abstract:

This paper reports on one aspect of a comprehensive program designed to investigate the effects of various levels of impact acceleration on the functional integrity of the nervous system. The results described are based on the measurement of afferent neural transmission in the Rhesus monkey as revealed by latency and amplitude changes in the evoked potential EP. In order to track the time course of recovery of latency and amplitude with high time resolution, automated methods for detecting peak amplitude and latency of components of the evoked potential were developed. These methods were applied to EP data recorded during impact experiments on Rhesus monkeys.
