The transient data of the pinch force produced between the human forefinger and thumb have been shown to fit the functional form of the well-known lognormal density function. Isometeric force generation is achieved by the stochastic recruitment of individual motor units, which sum together. Evidence from animal and human experiments demonstrates that the force generation can be modelled by underdamped terms. It is shown that a lognormal time series (distribution) can be fitted to a sum of exponential decaying sinusoidal terms.
