Megan Gueli MVS 320 Prelab #1 Laboratory 1: Phasic and Tonic Muscle Activation Patterns Introduction: Module 1: The purpose of this module is to further examine the relationship between magnitude of phasic muscle activity and the speed of a rhythmic limb movement. By looking at elbow displacement and muscle activity in the biceps and triceps, we should be able to see the speed at which the speed affects the magnitude of phasic muscle activity. It is expected that the speed will directly relate to the magnitude of phasic muscle activity. Methods: Module 1: After cleaning the area of application on the biceps and triceps with an alcohol pad, you then attach two of the blue electrode pads to the skin in a straight line along the length of the muscle. Then to reduce the amount of stray electricity from the EMG signal, it is recommended that you attach a ground electrode to a bony surface area. Place channel 1 to correspond to the biceps and channel 2 to correspond with the triceps using tape and
