reaction of degeneration


reaction of degeneration
reaction of degeneration n the reaction to electric stimulation that occurs in muscles in which the nerves have undergone degeneration and that consists in severe cases of a sluggish response to galvanic stimulation of the muscle and no response to faradic stimulation of the muscle or to galvanic or faradic stimulation of the nerve abbr. RD

* * *

the reaction to electric stimulation of muscles whose nerves have degenerated. It consists of a loss of response to a faradic stimulus in a muscle and to galvanic and faradic stimulus in a nerve. Galvanic irritability of the muscle is increased. Abbreviated Ea. R. (Ger. Entartungs-Reaktion) and RD.
