In an effort to improve prosthesis design, researchers from Northwestern University and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago investigated how EMG control of a virtual computer interface affects an individual’s motor adaptation.
For several decades, studies throughout the motor control literature has claimed synchronization of motor unit firings result from common presynaptic branches, or “common inputs” shared by the motoneurons. However, the methods that support this […]
Over the last half-century, numerous attempts have been made to decompose surface EMG signals into individual motor unit firings. Unfortunately, identifying these firings amidst ambient noise and the activity of dozens of other motor […]
