Motoneuron simulations for counting motor units (Major and Jones 2005)

Simulations of clinical methods to count the number of motoneurons/motor units in human patients. Models include stimulation of motor axons or voluntary activation and responses are measured as muscle tension or EMG.

Model Type: Neuromuscular Junction

Cell Type(s): Spinal cord lumbar motor neuron alpha ACh cell

Model Concept(s): Simplified Models; Methods

Simulation Environment: MATLAB

Implementer(s): Major, Lora [lora.major at]
