ABSTRACT Object : To develop normal range of Motor nerve conduction studies(MNCS) of Median nerve in young adults(17-20 year of age, Mean=19.16) in NSCB Medical College, Jabalpur. Method : 50 healthy volunteers(25 female) were included in this study without having history of neurological complain or comorbidities that may affect MNCS. The data included in the final analysis were Amplitude, Latency, and Nerve conduction velocity (NCV). Result : The mean Amplitude, Latency and NCV for wrist to axilla segment are 9.9 ± 1.48 millisecond ; 13.84 ± 4.43 millivolt ; 81.51 ± 3.19 meter/sec respectively (p=0.05 ) Conclusion : The reference value were derived in young healthy adult for Median nerve using surface electrode by computerized machine.
