    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... View full abstract»

    Homomorphic analysis and pole-zero modeling of electrocardiogram (ECG) signals are presented in this paper. Four typical ECG signals are considered and deconvolved into their minimum and maximum phase components through cepstral filtering, with a view to study the possibility of more efficient feature selection from the component signals for diagnostic purposes. The complex cepstra of the signals ... View full abstract»

    An instrument for the continuous measurement of pre-ejection period (PEP) in the human fetus using Doppler ultrasound is presented. An important feature of the instrument is its ability to track the continuously changing location of the reflections. The design includes a recently developed nonlinear filtering technique that is quite insensitive both to the large amounts of noise of biologic origin... View full abstract»

    A technique for on-line receptive field mapping of cutaneous receptors is presented. A punctate stimulus is drawn over the surface of the skin in a raster scan. The area scanned is partitioned into an N ×N matrix, with each element of the matrix element representing the number of action potentials produced by the receptor when the punctate stimulus was passing through the square of skin assigned ...

    This paper describes the software system for a minicomputer-based real-time data-acquisition system that is currently being used by clinical dental personnel of the University of Michigan Dental Research Institute. Because this system is utilized by operators who are unfamiliar with computers it is highly interactive. Also described are the software design considerations engendered by such a resea...

  • An Adaptation-Overlap Model of the Electroretinogram

    Publication Year: 1979, Page(s):365 - 369
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2612 KB)

    The electroretinographic (ERG) responses to a rapid sequence of laser stimuli are modeled by an adaptation function and the superposition of responses to successive stimuli. The adaptation function is a linear high-pass filter followed by a nonlinear circuit. The model-predicted responses are compared with measured responses at four different stimulus intensities and for stimulus rates up to 50 pe... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an eye position monitoring system that can be built using inexpensive components for the demodulator. It uses a two-frequency (f and 2f) technique which provides excellent channel separation with a miinimum of adjustment and wide dynamic signal range. Phasing errors produce no crosstalk effects for a pure sine-wave signal. It should be noted that this system will also work as ... View full abstract»

    Extracellular action potentials from 76 different muscle fibers in the human brachial biceps were recorded, with a 14 lead multielectrode, each leading-off surface being 25 μm in diameter. Volume conduction of these action potentials was calculated by representing the low-pass filter characteristics of the muscle tissue by a transfer function with one time constant and an attenuation facto...
