The fastest nerve conducts an impulse at 120 metres per second. However transmission speed is related to diameter, and so nerves with a smaller diameter conduct impulses at a much slower speed. In general, the conduction velocity is approximately equal to 6 x axon diameter in micrometres. The constant value of 6 is referred to as the Hursh factor.
