However, there are other, more substantial errors that may confuse the novice reader. We think that this book will be of great help for all segmental and peripheral innervation, origin and insertion, those who deal with electromyography, either in clinical position of patient or limb, point of electrode insertion, test practice or in research activities.


Almost all of the appendicular muscles include a cross-section illustration.

Some muscles are designed differently in the same electromyographer to better identify the muscles and chapter e. The first one illustrates the preferred site for electrode J.
