Neuromuscular junctions comprise the last synapses in the chain mediating voluntary and reflex commands that under behaviour. Access to general mechanisms of synaptic development and plasticity is facilitated at neuromuscular junctions by the stereotyped patterns of motoneuron innervation of muscle, and by the large size of the postsynaptic structures at motor end-plates on individual muscle fibres. These features permit detailed descriptions at systems, cellular and molecular levels of the… CONTINUE READING
