The microneurography technique was used to analyze use-dependent frequency modulation of action potential (AP) trains in human nociceptive peripheral nerves. Fifty-one single C-afferent units (31 mechano-responsive, 20 mechano-insensitive) were recorded from cutaneous fascicles of the peroneal nerve in awake human subjects. Trains of two and four… (More)
We describe how multiple-target tracking may be used to estimate conduction velocity changes and recovery constants of human nerve C-fibers. These parameters discriminate different types of C-fibers and pursuing this may promote new insights into differential properties of nerve fiber membranes. Action potentials (APs) were recorded from C-fibers in the… (More)
A simulation program for research and teaching electromyography (EMG) has been developed. It has a great number of parameters that may be optionally changed in simulations of normal and diseased muscle. The simulator is user-friendly and fast and can actually be run without much help from the manual. It is easy to introduce new motor units (MU), to change… (More)
Using a signal processing approach, we analyze the line source model for muscle action potential (AP) modeling. We show that the original model presents a tradeoff between violating the Nyquist criterion on one hand and using a discretization frequency that is unnecessarily high with respect to the bandwidth of the generated AP on the other. Here, we… (More)
—We describe a multiple target tracking (MTT) application in microneurography that estimate conduction velocity changes and recovery constants of human nerve C-fibers. Results using the tracking system on real data are presented. Action potentials (APs) were recorded from C-fibers in the peroneal nerve of awake human subjects. The APs were detected by a… (More)
Signal processing within the neurophysiological field is challenging and requires short processing time and reliable results. In this thesis, three main problems are considered. First, a modified line source model for simulation of muscle action potentials (APs) is presented. It is formulated in continuous-time as a convolution of a muscle-fiber dependent… (More)
This research presents an investigation performed on the ASU corpus. We analyse to what extent does the pronunciation of intended words reflects in spelling errors done by L2 Swedish learners. We also propose a method that helps to automatically discriminate the misspellings affected by pronunciation from other types of misspellings.
