Line 1: Line 1:
 A neuromuscular junction is the area where a neurone meets a muscle fiber. The junction is stimulated by an action potential arriving at the neurone which then causes an influx of calcium ions into the cell. This goes on to cause the vesicles within the neurone containing acetylcholine to fuse with the membrane and travel across the junction and stimulate muscle contraction.
