1 NERVE AND MUSCLE The skeletal muscles are innervated by the motor neurones, the anterior hom cells, the axon of each of which branches extensively and innervates a large number of individual muscle fibres. The muscle fibres and the controlling motor neurone together form the motor unit. The area of contact between the terminus of the motor neurone'branch and the muscle fibre is the motor end-plate, and within this structure the terminal nerve branches lie within hollows (the synaptic gutters) in the muscle fibre.
