Which of the following statements best describes the physiology involved with
cardiac muscle tissue?
The contraction is involuntary and does not respond directly to any
In this tissue, relaxation occurs during depolarization of the muscle
membrane and stops after repolarization.
In this tissue, the chemical acetylcholine is released by the vesicles in the
neuromuscular junction with a resultant influx of potassium ions into the muscle.
The secretion of acetylcholinesterase near the neuromuscular junction
produces the contraction of this type of tissue.
