Synapse. SEM of a neuromuscular junction showing a motor neuron (orange) terminating on skeletal muscle fibers (pink).


Last week's ‪#‎mysteryanatomy‬ structure was the neuromuscular junction. The neuromuscular junction (NMJ) is a chemical synapse formed by the contact between a motor neuron and a muscle fiber. It is at the NMJ that a motor neuron is able to transmit a signal to the muscle fiber causing muscle contraction. Read more @
