This photograph illustrates the technique for the median sensory study, recording from digit 1 (thumb). Sensation to digit 1, in most people, is split between the median and radial nerves, making this useful in a comparison study looking for a median mononeuropathy at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome).
