German term or phrase: Nervenleitgeschwindigkeitsverzögerung
Too much exposure to lead apparently causes the above. Would I translate it as
delayed or retarded nerve conduction speed or velocity?
Julie
English translation:see below
Explanation:
I'd say reduction [or retardation] in the nerve conduction velocity.
Bunjes also gives delay, retardation (physiol. and chem.), delay (im Ablauf), or, in the sense of Verlangsamung: slowing down or deceleration

From Pschyrembel:
Nerven|leitungs|geschwindigkeit (­): Abk. NLG; Geschwindigkeit, mit der ein Reiz an einer Nervenfaser weitergeleitet wird (s. Tab.); abhängig von Faserdurchmesser u. Vorhandensein einer Myelinscheide*; Bestimmung mittels Elektroneurographie*.

(deutsch) Nervenleitungsgeschwindigkeit
(englisch) nerve conduction velocity

Verzoegerung in diesem Sinne=inhibitor
I would translate it as follows:
The neurotransmission is inhibited/delayed.

decreased nerve impulse speed


Explanation:
The URL below is about nerve impulse speed. When a nerve impulse is delayed or retarded, then the speed is decreased.

deficit in (deficient) nerve conduction velocity


Explanation:
AltaVista (English:) 1,866 pages found for the following queries: word count: neural conduction speed: 3; neural conduction velocity: 13; nerve conduction speed: 43; nerve conduction velocity: about 1000. Examples of usage and context:
