diskette.gif The Virtual NMJ

The Virtual NMJ is a simulation of an experiment recording the electrical potentials associated with neuromuscular transmission at the skeletal neuromuscular junction. The simulation allows you to observe the muscle action potential (AP) and endplate potentials (EPPs) evoked by either nerve stimulation or by direct current stimulation of the muscle fibre. The effects of a variety of drugs and of changes to ionic composition of the extracellular solution on the AP and EPPs can be studied.
