comment Amount of neurons in the heart
@Christian Apologies if my answer was a bit terse. While the tissue of the SA node is excitable (has channels, etc.) I believe it is still considered to be part of the cardiac musculature. Some refer to the activity in heart as action potentials, but really it is the effect of passing the electrical excitation along the membrane (in the case of the heart, the musculature) rather than along an axon.
