Solution

The correct option is B

In cardiac muscles


To facilitate energy and calcium conductance in cardiac muscle cells, unique junctions called intercalated discs (gap junctions) link the cells together and define their borders.
A neuromuscular junction is a synapse between a motor neuron and skeletal muscle.
The junction between two neurons is also known as a synapse. Synapses can occurbetween two connected neurons or between a neuron and its target cells such as a muscle or gland cell.
