Question. Eye-lid muscles have

Question. Muscle contraction is triggered
(a) when high levels of oxygen and sugar are released by the sarcolemma.
(b) when a surplus of ATP is released by a nerve motor unit.
(c) by release of a neurotransmitter at a synapse that directly causes actin and myosin to slide.
