The 'lethargic' mouse has a neuropathy (tail nerve) with slowed motor nerve conduction velocity, prolonged distal motor latency and reduced evoked muscle action potential. The difference between the distal latencies of the normal and lethargic mice is particularly manifest at low rectal temperature (28%). The underlying pathological processes which may be responsible for these findings are discussed.
