This chapter discusses the theory and practice of some of the more common techniques devised for recording electrical activity in single axons or fiber bundles. It focuses on electrophysiological methods, whereby potential changes are measured by instruments in direct electrical contact with the preparation using various electrodes. Topics covered include whole nerve extracellular recordings, field potential recordings from central nervous system tracts, suction electrodes, intra-axonal recording, and patch-clamp recordings.

Keywords:   axons, electrical activity, recordings, fiber bundles, electrophysiological methods, suction eletrodes
