EMG and bandlimited noise (BLN) signals of comparable spectra were processed to compute the centroid and median frequencies and the high/low ratio for different record lengths, signal amplitudes, and noise bandwidths. The spectral moments of EMG and BLN showed similar statistical properties, independent of record length and amplitude. The signal-to-noise(More)
