This animation presents the structure and the ultrastructure (also called the “fine structure”) of the neuromuscular junction. Microphotographs enable one to relate the schematic diagrams to the real structures.
To learn the organization of the motor end plate.
To illustrate the structure and ultrastructure of the neuromuscular synapse.
Motor function is controlled by the nervous system. The neuromuscular junction is the link between the nervous and the muscular systems.
Rachidian motor nerves are made up of multiple, parallel…
