Factors determining conduction velocity are diameter, myelination,
temperature & Age.
The larger the diameter, the faster the conduction.
The relationship between fibe diameter and conduction velocity is
shown to be 6m/sec/um (micrometer) for relatively large-diameter
myelinated mammalian nerve fiber.
