Objective: The strength-duration time constant (SDTC) is a measure of axonal excitability and depends on the biophysical properties of the axonal membrane. The strength-duration time constant can provide information about Na(+) channel function. We aimed to examine changes in the SDTCs of motor and sensory fibers in the median nerves in patients with alcoholic polyneuropathy.
