    When a muscle cell receives a signal from a motor neuron, every sarcomere within that muscle cell is activated. The signal moves from the motor neuron to the muscle cell by crossing the synapse. When acetylcholine binds the sodium enters the T tubules and this causes calcium to be released from the sarcoplamic reticulum. Calcium binds to tropomyosin, which allows actin to bind to myosin and each sarcomere contracts. There is nothing and no way to separate individual sarcomeres. They are all activated together.
