The paper proposes the use of Independent Component Analysis (ICA), an unsupervised learning technique, in order to process raw surface ElectroMyoGraphic (sEMG) data by reducing the typical "cross-talk" effect on the electric interference pattern measured by the surface sensors. The ICA is implemented by means of a multi layer NN scheme. The basic tool is the wavelet decomposition, that allows us to detect and analyse time varying signals. An auto-associative NN that exploits wavelet coefficients as an input vector is also used as simple detector of non-stationarity based on a measure of reconstruction error. In addition, Morlet Wavelets have been exploited for classification problems.
