Metadata is essential for handling medical data according to FAIR principles. Standards are well-established for many types of electrophysiological methods but are still lacking for microneurographic recordings of peripheral sensory nerve fibers in humans. Developing a new concept to enhance laboratory workflows is a complex process. We propose a standard for structuring and storing microneurography metadata based on odML and odML-tables. Further, we present an extension to the odML-tables GUI that enables user-friendly search functionality of the database. With our open-source repository, we encourage other microneurography labs to incorporate odML-based metadata into their experimental routines.
