This photograph illustrates the technique for performing a median motor nerve conduction study, recording from the abductor pollicis brevis (APB) muscle. The recording electrode (G1, black) is placed over the belly of the APB. The reference electrode (G2, red) is placed at the proximal phalanx of the thumb. Stimulation shown here is at the elbow, just proximal to the elbow crease, medial to the pulse or the biceps tendon.
