Abstract

This paper uses an entropy based metric to study the somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) in rodents afflicted with focal demyelination spinal cord injury (SCI). It ha sbeen shown that amplitude characteristics of the SEP signal are a strong indicator of the integrity of the spinal cord sensory pathways. Compared to conventional correlation based metrics, the metric used in this paper exploits the amplitude histogram of SEP signals to provide a robust assessment of the different degrees of demyelination in the spinal cord. Results are presented using actual SEP signals collected on rodents with various levels of SCI.
