The Trembler mouse suffers from a hereditary demyelinating neuropathy. Nerve conduction studies were performed on the sciatic nerve, median nerve and dorsal nerve of the tail. There was a prolonged terminal latency, and motor conduction velocities were less than 10 m/sec in all the nerves examined. The electrophysiological abnormalities correlate with the pathological findings of hypomyelination.
