Objective markers of disease progression in ALS clinical trials are urgently needed. Quantification of motor unit loss by means of MUNIX (Motor Unit Number IndeX) has the great advantage that this measure directly reflects the underlying pathology. Likewise, phrenic nerve conduction studies will not only objectively reveal diaphragmatic function but also prognostic information. Both methods have gained a lot of scientific interest over the past few years and are at the forefront of ALS research. This course will focus on practical issues. Participants will understand the applicability and limitations of these methods.  After a brief introduction to both methods (lecture 15 minutes each) participants will apply the methods on each other.  MUNIX will be performed on APB, ADM, FDI, Biceps, TA, EDB. After the course attendees will be able to make high quality MUNIX recordings and CMAP recordings of the diaphragm.
