Ever wonder what makes a person’smuscles to contract and relax while doing their daily activities? Neuromuscularjunctions are crucial in processing one’s movements as well as breathing.Therefore, it is essential for survival. It is located in the body where themotor neurons of the nervous system transmit messages from the brain andinstruct the muscles cells to contract or take action.
It is also the cause ofthe beating of an organism’s heart. Neuromuscular synapse is formed when thereis a connection between the motor neurons and the skeletal muscle fibers. Inother words, a skeletal muscle contracts when it is stimulated by a motorneuron. After the skeletal muscle is stimulated, a synapse can be found.
Asynapse is the space between the motor neuron and the skeletal muscle cell. Theneuromuscular converts the action potential from the presynaptic motor neuroninto the contraction of the postsynaptic muscle fiber which results in asuccessfully functioning organism. This paper will demonstrate thephysiological events that is involve with activating neuromuscular junction,the anatomical structure of the neuromuscular junction, and including the threepotential inhibitors affecting the neuromuscular junction.
