118 – EMG Signal Analysis

The analysis of the EMG signal in the frequency domain involves measurements and parameters which describe specific aspects of the frequency spectrum of the signal. Two parameters of the power density spectrum may be easily used to provide useful measures of the EMG frequency spectrum. The two measures of interest are:

If the EMG spectrum has a normal distribution, the Median and Mean frequencies will be identical. Any deviation from normality will result in differing values for the Median and Mean frequencies.

This application note illustrates how to extract median and mean values for the frequency spectra of EMG signals. AcqKnowledge is used to calculate these parameters after the EMG data has been collected.

Students Get Smart

Science Night at Adams Elementary (Santa Barbara, CA) encourages students to discover, play, explore and learn about the importance of science and engineering in daily life. BIOPAC set up a BioNomadix Wireless Smart Center to allow students to record their hear rate. Electrodes were placed on students and leads were connected to a wireless transmitter that sent data […]

New Citations | Stimulation and Mental Processing

Recent developments regarding electric stimulation and mental processing have lead to interesting developments in psychophysiology and physiological sciences. The following studies look at developments in how we potentially care for and understand solutions to issues with mental health, as well as new ways to monitor electrical stimulus on participants. The ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) is […]
