Expert Answer:

A neuron that conveys impulses from the central nervous system to a muscle, gland, or other effector tissue is called a motor neuron.


Upon adequate stimulation, the motor neuron releases a flood of neurotransmitters that bind to postsynaptic receptors and triggers a response in the muscle fiber.
