This data supports the journal paper titled 'Influence of nerve cuff channel count and implantation site on the separability of afferent ENG'. Electroneurogram signals recorded from 16-channel and 3 -channel cuff electrodes placed on the sciatic nerve of Sprague Dawley rats. The recordings were made in response to three types of mechanical stimulation, namely, proprioception, touch and nociception. The data files include synchronisation comments and signals that indicate when a stimulus was applied and what the stimulus was. Proprioceptive responses were recorded in response to a servo motor moving the foot to one of 6 different angles. Touch responses were recorded in response to heel of the foot being touched with different Von Frey fibres. Finally, Nociception responses were recorded in response to the foot being pinched using a pair of forceps either on the heel, or the outer toe.
