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