  journal={IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering},
The myoelectric (ME) signal is the electrical manifestation of the neuromuscular activation associated with a contracting muscle. It is an exceedingly complicated signal which is affected by the anatomical and physiological properties of muscles, the control scheme of the peripheral nervous system, as well as the characteristics of the instrumentation that is used to detect and observe it. Most of the relationships between the ME signal and the properties of a contracting muscle which are… CONTINUE READING
