The present study aims to find new features that support the differential diagnosis of neuromuscular diseases. Scanning EMG is an experimental method developed for understanding the motor unit organization and for observing temporal and spatial characteristics of motor unit's electrical activity. A motor unit consists of a motor neuron and muscle fibers that are innervated by its motor neuron.
