Muscular diseases or Myopathies

Muscular diseases or myopathies are produced by an alteration in the ability to contract muscles efficiently. Although the motor order is generated in the brain, the last link in the chain is the muscle itself. This motor order passes along the neurones, then the nerves, it interacts with the muscle via the motor end plate and, finally, the muscle contracts itself.
