Summary: 
We applied control theory to nerve-muscle in order to model and systematize the muscle system. The association between nerve stimulation frequencies and electromyogram (EMG) amplitude was studied in rat nerve-muscle under normal and hypokalemic conditions. From these results, we modeled the nerve-muscle and simulated frequency response from the nerve-muscle system which can be expressed as a closed loop transfer function.
