what all happens durring a reflex action?
Asked by ayushikas | 9th Jul, 2010, 12:00: AM
Reflex actions are instantaneous and not under our control.
When a sensory receptor is stimulated, signals pass from it along a sensory neuron to the spinal cord. The message travels out of the spinal cord along a motor neuron to the effector organ (e.g., a muscle or a gland), which acts accordingly. Such a pathway is called a reflex arc.
