The study of surface electromyographic (EMG) signals under dynamic contractions is becoming increasingly important. However, knowledge of the methodological issues that may affect such analysis is still limited. The aim of the study was to analyse the effect of fibre shortening on estimates of conduction velocity (CV) and mean power spectral frequency (MNF) from surface EMG signals. Single fibre action potentials were simulated, as detected by commonly used spatial filters, for different fibre… CONTINUE READING
