Asked in Biology, The Difference Between
What is the difference between a myogenic and a neurogenic heart?
The myogenic heart refers to the contractile part of it, while the neurogenic heart refers to the highly specialized muscle cells that no longer contract but instead conduct impulses in the heart. ...

Asked in Heart
Why human heart is myogenic in nature?
In the human heart, contraction is initiated by a special modified heart muscle known as sinoatrial node. It is located in the right atrium. The SA node has the inherent power of generating a wave of contraction and controlling the heart beat. Hence, it is known as the pacemaker. Since the heart beat is initiated by the SA node and the impulse of contraction originates in the heart itself, the human heart is termed myogenic. The hearts of vertebrates and molluscs are...
Asked in Animal Life
What you mean myogenic heart?
So the word "myogenic" refers to a type of cell, a myocyte, that is able to contract by itself, without any nerve stimulation (aka signals from the brain). So if someone refers to a myogenic heart, that person just means that the heart is able to beat on its own, without you willing it to beat. The myocytes within the heart regulate the heart's contractions instead of your brain doing it. ...

Asked in Heart
How does the human heart operate?
Human heart is myogenic in nature. It consists of sinoatrial node in the right atrium below the endodermis. this node initiates the electrical impulses in heart. As it is initiator it is also called pacemaker of heart. The atrioventricular node gathers the impulses and transmits them to the purkinje fibres via. bundle of his-tawara. As atrioventricular node collects all the impulses it is also called pacesetter of heart. ...
Asked in Circulatory System, Heart
While you are alive does your brain ever stop sending eletricity to your heart?
The brain does not send the electricity to the heart. The heart is myogenic which means it can contract and relax without any stimulus from the brain. ...
Asked in Conditions and Diseases
What is a neurogenic disorder?
A neurogenic disorder is a disorder in the nerves or nervous tissue of the human body. An example of this would be certain speech disorders such as aphasia. Other examples would be Parkinson' (Micheal J. Fox) or ALS (Lou Gehrig) or MS. ...
Asked in Muscular System
What muscle has coordinated activity to act as a pump?
cardiac heart, the activity is co ordinated via myogenic cells, and also by the nerves going to the sino atrial node. ...
