Skeletal Muscle Tissue Motor unit: a single motor neuron and all of the corresponding muscle fibers it innervates Two types by color: A)Red fibers: more myoglobin, slow contraction, small muscle force B)White fibers: fewer myoglobin, fast contraction, large muscle force
What is EMG? Electromyogram (EMG): the electrical potential generated by muscle cells when these cells are electrically or neurologically activated. Application: Detection of medical abnormalities, activation level, recruitment order. The biomechanics analysis of human or animal movement. Human–Computer Interface
How to Gather EMG Intramuscular EMG: A needle electrode or a needle containing two fine-wire electrodes is inserted through the skin into the muscle tissue. Surface EMG: Surface electrode over the skin.
STFT Gabor extended the applicability of Fourier transform method by dividing the input signal into segments. The signal in each window can be assumed to be stationary. Gabor transform:
WVD Since energy is a quadratic signal representation, a quadratic time-frequency representation such as the Wigner distribution can be used to represent it. pseudo Wigner-Ville distribution: h(τ): a regular window
CWD Running Windowed Exponential Distribution: The larger the value of σ is, the better the autoterm resolution, otherwise the cross-term reduction will be worse. (σ:0.1~10) Choi-Williams Distribution:
Wavelet Transform Wavelet replaces the frequency shifting operation in STFT by a time scaling operation a: the scale parameter; b: translation parameter Larger a : useful for analysis the low-frequency components of the signal. Smaller a : useful for analysis the high-frequency components of the signal.

Estimates of Time-Frequency Analysis Mean frequencies (MNF) as the indicators of spectral changes are M 1 (t) Dispersion index Skewness index Kurtosis index Relative error: : Estimator of spectral change : indicator of spectral change : # of time points observed

Discussion STFT had larger relative errors when estimating the MNF for stronger nonstationary signals (bursts) than those of the PWVD and RWED methods. PWVD method may overcome the problems associated with the cross-terms by removing them at the expense of smoothing the autoterms of the signal. CWT has been found to be very reliable in the analysis of nonstationary biological signals and does not require any smoothing function like the STFT, PWVD, and RWED
Discussion The increase in the MNF magnitudes are due to the recruitment of larger motor units. The MNF values are decreased during the isokinetic test probably due to the decrease in muscle fiber conduction velocity and the decrease in the force. The CWT method are more smoother than those obtained using the STFT, PWVD, and RWED methods.

Conclusion The CWT is a useful tool for the analysis of EMG signals in spite of the computational inefficiency. The discrete wavelet transform (DWT) may provide more efficiency than CWT and keep the advantage of CWT. The S transform with a drifting window may be used in time- frequency analysis of EMG.
