Abstract

Intact neural innervation is necessary for the maintenance of normal skeletal muscle structure and function and in the control of acetylcholinesterase activity. Features of innervation that may contribute to this influence include nerve and muscle electrical activity, neurotrophic substances transported through the axon, acetylcholine, and perhaps mechanical factors involved in muscle action (Ranish et al., 1981).
