Merging cells performing as a unit. In the heart they are electrically joined
Muscle fibers of atrium electrically joined to perform as a unit
Muscle fibers of ventricles joined electrically to perform as a unit
System of specialized cardiac muscle fibers that conduct cardiac impulses from the sino-atrial node into the myocardium
CARDIAC CONDUCTION SYSTEM
Specialized tissue in the wall of the right atrium that initiates cardiac cycles; these fibers are continuous with those of the atrial syncytium
The sinoatrialnode(SA) has rhythmic activity that generates heart contractions thus lending it this name
mass of muscle fibers in the interatrial septum that transmits cardiac impulses from the SA node to the AV bundle
(AV bundle or bundle of HIS) Fibers that conduct impulses rom the AV node to the Purkinje fibers in the ventricular muscles of the heart
Muscle fibers that conduct the cardiac impulse from the AV bundle into the ventricular walls
