Neuromuscular Junction TEM

The neuromuscular junction is synapse or junction located at the motor end plate where motor neurons synapse on muscle fibers, also known as a muscle cells. As an action potential reaches the end of a motor neuron, voltage gated calcium channels open allowing calcium to enter the neuron.
