    A feature of multifunction EMG control is that the operator is always aware when a decision is made. Thus, a sequential processor which observes the EMG signal for the length of time necessary to make a reliable decision would be a logical one. In this paper, two sequential processors are developed for the EMG signal. Exact expressions for the processor performance, error probability, and the aver... View full abstract»

    When recorded by surface electrodes, the electroencephalogram (EEG) may contain unwanted signals due to depolarization of scalp muscles and various electrochemical effects at the surface-metal junction. The former artifacts, in particular, are difficult to remove by linear filtering. This design study indicates that a state-of-the-art non-linear filter which includes a matched-filter detector with... View full abstract»

    A new approach to the measurement of muscle fiber conduction velocity by surface electromyography (EMG) is developed, based upon a triple surface-electrode configuration. Unlike previously reported methods, it does not require the Fourier transformation of raw EMG data, and can be implemented on-line on a simple digital computer. Although programmed here on a PDP-11 machine, the algorithms develop... View full abstract»

    A method is described which extends previously reported receptive field mapping experiments to a multiple unit case. The present paper describes the union of the receptive field mapping technique with binary correlation to produce multiple unit receptive field maps. Sample results using the technique are illustrated. View full abstract»

    The existence of a set of alternative models, all competing to characterize respiratoxy controller structure, leads naturally to a model discrimination problem. In these models the structure and0 parameter values are fixed. This paper considers the problem of input design for enhancing model discrimination. Using a class of models given by linear differential equations with time delays, an input c... View full abstract»

    The use of mathematical models of iron metabolism has been recognized as an essential tool for analyzing ferrokinetic data. Multicompartment models, however, did not make it possible to describe marrow iron kinetics, taking into account that marrow erythroid cells uptake iron from the plasma according to their maturity.

  • Laser Absorption Spectroscopy with an ATR Prism

    The use of lasers as light sources in IR spectroscopy allows an improvement in measuring sensitivity by a factor of about 100 compared with the conventional technique. In addition, the monochromaticity of lasers appreciably improves the resolution. Combining lasers with an ATR plate acting as test prism gets rid of transmission cells without impairing the measuring sensitivity. It also considerabl... View full abstract»
