1. Muscle activity was related to the direction of a static force at the human wrist. For each muscle the force direction of maximal activity and the directional tuning characteristics were determined. 2. Electromyographic (EMG) activity was recorded from nine superficial elbow and/or shoulder muscles while subjects held the right arm stationary in one of six postures. The direction of the force at the wrist was varied in two orthogonal planes. In each experiment a cable was attached to the… CONTINUE READING
