THE mammalian neuromuscular junction (NMJ) is one of the most studied and best understood synapses. Recent work has brought forth new information as to development, maturation, and function of this fundamental synapse, both in health and disease. The healthy function of the NMJ underlies one important measurement of the response to general anesthetics, immobility. “Neuromuscular blockers” acting directly at the NMJ are used as a component of many balanced anesthetic techniques, and the health… CONTINUE READING
