They contract on their own, without any signal or stimulus from other cells. The S-A node sends out a tiny electrical impulse that travels through the muscular walls of the atria. The impulse travels to the atrioventricular or A-V node, located between the atria and the ventricles. From there, it continues through the muscular walls of the ventricles, causing them to contract.
