Using Electromyography to Detect the Strength of Muscle Clench in Dominant and Non-Dominant Arm of an Individual The human body contains three kinds of muscle tissue: cardiac muscle, smooth muscle and skeletal muscle; each performs specific tasks to maintain homeostasis – the tendency to maintain a stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, mainly that which is maintained by physiological processes. The primary function of muscle, regardless of kind, is to convert chemical energy to mechanical work, which in turn allows the muscle to shorten or contracts. The muscle tissues observed in this experiment is the skeletal muscle which are usually attached to the skeleton. As a result, contraction of the skeletal muscle moves one part of the body with respect to another.
An increase in the strength of a muscle’s contraction is necessary to perform a task. Subsequently, the brain increases the number of simultaneously active motor units within the muscle by a process known as the motor unit recruitment. Physical muscle movement in humans involves movement of fibers which are hundreds of cylindrically shaped cells bound together by connective tissue. It is essential for individuals, mainly professionals who work to promote health, to understand the mechanisms in the body. Resting skeletal muscles in vivo exhibit a phenomenon known as tonus, a constant state of slight tension that serves to maintain the muscle by motor centers in the brain and spinal cord. However, muscle
