The extent of lipid peroxidation in breast (pectoralis superficialis) and thigh (biceps femoris) muscles was estimated by TBA-assay according to the modified procedure by McDonald and Hultin [26].
The muscle group responsible for forearm flexion and pronation (pronator teres, PT; flexor digitorum superficialis muscle, FDS; flexor carpi radialis muscle, FCR; FCU; and palmaris longus muscle, PL) originates from the medial epicondyle of the humerus and supports the motion of elbow flexion [9].
Conversely, skin pain evoked by capsaicin cream application to the dorsum of the hand resulted in no significant reductions of the FCR or the flexor digitorum superficialis corticomotor excitability [36].
Magnetic resonance imaging showed fluid signal surrounding the flexor digitorum profundus and superficialis of the third right digit along their entire extent with joint effusion in the third MCP with no erosive changes.
Intravenous fluids (approximately 100 mL 0.9% NaCl solution) were administered through an intravenous catheter placed into the metatarsal vein (vena metatarsea plantaris superficialis).

Abstract: The aim of the study is to generate control signals from surface Electromyography signals (EMGs) measured from four hand muscles; Extensor carpi radialis, Palmaris longus, Pronator quadratus and Flexor digitorum superficialis to navigate a prosthetic hand.
Surface electromyography (sEMG) was used to measure muscle activity on four superficial muscles, Flexor digitorum superficialis, Flexor pollicis longus, Extensor digitorum communis, Extensor carpi radialis brevis, which give feedback independent of each other.
In cooking terms, the two muscles are called the "flat" (pectoralis profundi) and the "point" (pectoralis superficialis).
