Contradiction[edit]

If you divide the CMAP size by Steps to get a mean, then divide the CMAP size by the mean, you will get Steps.

"The CMAP is then divided by the number of steps required to reach the intensity of the CMAP to get a mean SMUAP size. The number of steps does not correlate to the total number of motor units in the muscle. Instead, the CMAP size is then divided by the mean SMUAP size to get an estimation of the number of motor units in the muscle." 173.25.54.191 (talk) 09:59, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
