EMG recordings are frequently used to obtain a better understanding in the coordination of movements. However, EMG is made up by the weighted summation of activity of many motor units with different contractile properties. Recent studies have revealed that different motor units contribute to muscle force in different motor tasks. The flexible recruitment of… CONTINUE READING
