Measurement of axonal excitability provides an in vivo indication of the properties of the nerve membrane and of the ion channels expressed on these axons. Axonal excitability techniques have been utilised to investigate the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying neurological diseases. This document presents guidelines derived for such studies, based on a consensus of international experts, and highlights the potential difficulties when interpreting abnormalities in diseased axons. The present manuscript provides a state-of-the-art review of the findings of axonal excitability studies and their interpretation, in addition to suggesting guidelines for the optimal performance of excitability studies.
