Question: muscle fibers generally only have one motor end plate but...

Question details

Muscle fibers generally only have one motor end plate, but motor neurons innervate many different muscle fibers in a group. Choose the statement that correctly explains how this affects muscle contraction.

Multiple Choice

  • The force of a contraction does not at all depend on the strength of the signal sent via the motor neuron.

  • While muscle fibers only have one motor end plate, they can recruit each other to contract once a fiber receives a signal.

  • A signal traveling through one motor neuron can potentially make multiple fibers in a group contract, generating more force.

  • When a motor neuron transmits a signal, only one fiber will contract with strong force.
