Top Ten Files Accessed on Netmouse.com

I have a website over at Netmouse.com, hosted on GoDaddy. GoDaddy is cheap, but there are a number of things I find frustrating about it so I don't recommend it as a host. (I don't know a better one, I'm just not that happy with this one). Anyway, a discussion of hosting and web states elsewhere caused me to take a look at my referral and file access statistics.

Decomposition-based Quantitative Electromyography (DQEMG)

So, after my last post, Skennedy asks, "What is 'Decomposition-based Quantitative Electromyography'?"

Other than the topic of my master's thesis, Decomposition-based Quantitative EMG (DQEMG) is an analytical process by which the electrical signal from a muscle is decomposed into waveforms that represent the contributing Motor Unit Action Potentials, or MUAPs. Typically then, quantitative characteristics of those MUAPs (or also of the actional potential trains that are the series of MUAPS involved in a single muscle contraction that come from each motor unit) are used to contribute to (or eliminate) possible diagnostic conclusions as to the health or particular condition of the muscle.
