Further, the time of recovery might be expected to vary in proportion to the latent period, for the more complete the ischemia the less rapid should be the recovery. No such relationship was observed. Recovery tended to either begin immediately or to be much delayed, without relation to the pressure employed or to the latent interval of conduction failure. Thus, after exposure to 56 cm of pressure, with failure of conduction in twenty-seven minutes, recovery in 1 experiment began immediately on release. In another experiment, after failure in twenty-five minutes, recovery began six minutes after release.
