This is reflex activity. The word reflex (from Latin reflexus, “reflection”) was introduced into biology by a 19th-century English neurologist, Marshall Hall, who fashioned the word because he thought of the muscles Volker Dietz, Thomas Sinkjaer, in Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Flexor/withdrawal reflex. The flexor reflex is a polysynaptic spinal reflex that might be connected with spinal locomotor centers (Bussel et al., ).The dominant view is that flexor reflexes are exaggerated after a central nervous lesion and cause muscle spasms after severe spinal cord injury (Ditunno et al., ). a) A type of reflex action b) A gap between two neurons c) The long fiber in a nerve cell 2) What part of the nervous system is not involved in reflex actions? a) The brain b) The spinal cord c) Receptors 3) Which type of neuron transmits a signal from a sense organ to the CNS?

  The autonomic nervous system is divided between the sympathetic system (which mediates the response of hormonal stress, producing all involuntary movements linked to hormones) and the parasympathetic system (responsible for the regulation of internal organs).   In our studies, no child exhibited the highest level of reflex activity. This observation seems to confirm the fact that, in a population of healthy children, there is no increase or very strong presence of APRs, because it would indicate serious problems in the functioning of the nervous :// Claire C. Yang, in Encyclopedia of the Neurological Sciences, Neuroanatomy. The micturition reflex is peripherally mediated by components of the somatic and the autonomic nervous systems. The bladder receives its motor innervation through the parasympathetic pelvic nerves. The principal nuclei innervating the urinary bladder of the cat consist of motor neurons located in the gray matter The autonomic nervous system which controls all the involuntary actions of the body is a vital system because without this system maintenance of homeostasis in the body would have been impossible. For example, if we touched a hot iron and we had no reflex to remove our hands, the skin would be burnt and we would have an :// /the-role-of-the-nervous-system-and-reflex-arcs-in.
