This paper presents results from a pilot experiment in which the technique of velocity selective recording (VSR) was used to identify naturally occurring electroneurogram (ENG) signals within the intact nerve of a rat. Signals were acquired using a set of electrodes placed along the length of the nerve, formed from simple wire hooks. This basic form of recording has already been applied in-vivo to the analysis of electrically excited compound action potentials (CAPs) in both pig and frog, however, this method has never before been used to identify naturally occurring neural signals. Results in this paper highlight challenges which must be overcome in order for the transition to be made from electrically evoked potentials to naturally occurring signals.
