Magnetic signals from human skeletal muscles

  • S. Koga

The pulse wave form for the magnetomyogram (MMG) of the human right leg was examined. The typical pulse durations are about (10÷20) ms. The spatial variation of the MMG suggests a source in the anterior muscles.

È stata esaminata la forma d’onda d’impulso per il magnetomiogramma (MMG) dell’arto inferiore destro umano. Le durate tipiche degl’impulsi sono di circa (10÷20) ms. La variazione spaziale del MMG suggerisce un’origine nei muscoli anteriori della tibia.
