    Three neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) from the diaphragm of a young male rat, illustrate the complex connections between motor neurons and muscle fibers that facilitate precise control of muscle contractions for breathing. This work was done by Sarah Asif from the Martha Gillette Lab and funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Chicago Acceleration Award. Image was taken with the LSM 900.
