A neural network controlled muscle system is designed and built using an electronic neuron model as the basic element to form the netwrok, and an opposing-actuator device, composed of two electromagnetic solenoids, as the prime mover. The system is analyzed with the help of a variable impedance muscle stimulator previously used for live muscle testing. The static and dynamic characteristics of the model resemble those of a live muscle. Parameters of the network are varied to determine their effects on the system. Author
