K531 | 6510 | Vardaxis
COURSE PREREQUISITES OF LIMITATIONS:
Undergraduate courses in physiology, biomechanics and anatomy or permission
by the instructor.
One 75 minute period twice a week
COURSE DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES:
An introduction to the theoretical framework, experimental techniques for
analog data acquisition and reduction employed in Exercise Science Research.
Emphasis will be given to the EMG signal analysis and understanding.
Amongst other instruments, the student will become familiar with the use of
electromyographs, force platforms, and electromyographs, force platforms,
and electrogoniometers. Lectures plus laboratory work on selected topics
will be included. The course will be divided in the following 3 modules
aiming at: (1) Basic understanding of the analog signal processing, (2)
Electromyography (Physiological characteristics of the EMG signal), and (3)
EMG signal software and hardware techniques (Experimental-considerations).
