Background: In investigations of the human motor system, two approaches are generally employed toward the identification of common modulating drives from motor unit recordings. One is a frequency domain method and uses the coherence function to determine the degree of linear correlation between each frequency component of the signals. The other is a time(More)
Coherence analysis is widely employed to study the correlation between discharge times of simultaneously active motor units. Despite the widespread application of the technique, it has not been fully established how the characteristics of the observed coherence are related to the properties of the shared motoneuron inputs. In addition, the exact(More)
The functional coupling between the primary motor cortex (M1) and the supplementary motor area (SMA) in the generation of internally paced versus externally cued rhythmic movements was explored using electroencephalography (EEG). This has important implications for the study of Parkinsonian patients who demonstrate decreased ability to perform internally(More)
An analytical solution for pulsatile axial flow velocity waveforms in curved elastic tubes is presented. The result is obtained by exact solution of linearized Navier-Stokes and tube motion equations in a torroidal coordinate system. Fourier analysis is used to divide the flow into constant and oscillatory components which are separately considered. The(More)
