The Review of Applications and Measurements in Facial Electromyography
In this paper, many applications related to facial EMG topics are reviewed and the current recommended practices are described. We have surveyed the facial EMG application on masticatory function evaluation, speech analysis and recognition, and emotional expression observation. In addition, we also introduce the measurement of facial EMG including the electrode selection; electrode position and noise reduction. Finally, we have brought up some comments and issues for further developments of facial EMG technique. The purpose of this paper is to point out a potential and novel research topic, facial EMG. We hope to raise the interest in this topic and bring up some inspiration for researchers studying facial EMG technique.
