Abstract:Various anode-cathode configurations in a nerve cuff were modeled in order to optimize its spatial selectivity characteristics for FNS. Apart from the usual configurations (monopole, bipole, longitudinal tripole, ¿steering¿ anode), a transverse tripolar configuration (central cathode) was examined. The model predictions were verified by acute animal experiments. It is concluded that a transverse tripole activates superficial nerve fibers in a more selective way than other configurations do
