Introduction: neuropathy is a condition in which the peripheral nervous system is disrupted. The study of the effects of antioxidants on the performance improvement of this system is vital. This study was aimed at the investigation of the effects of date extract on nerve conduction velocity, distal latency, and wave height of the sciatic nerve in male rats. 
Materials and Methods: this laboratory study used 24 male Wistar rats weighting 250-300 grams, divided into the test and control group. The test group received 10% date extract, daily, at 4 ml per kilogram of body weight, for three weeks. At the beginning, nerve conduction velocity, distal latency, and wave height of the sciatic nerve were examined in all the animals, and reexamined for nerve conduction velocity at the end, three weeks later. P-values lower than 0.05 were considered significant. Results: sciatic nerve conduction velocity and wave height were significantly increased, however, distal latency of the knee significantly declined in the test group compared to the control group.  
Conclusion: The compositions of date extract accelerate electrical signal transmission.
