The main function of the nervous system is to serve the body’s control center and communications network. Each nerve consists of various elements that possess distinct anatomic and physiological properties which allow them to perform their intended roles and function as a unit. Studies have shown the endoneurium, perineurium and epineurium, comprising the successive layers of intraneural connective tissue surrounding nerve fibers, to exhibit different properties [1, 2]. It is therefore important to take this into consideration when investigating mechanical properties of nerves.
