3 Reflex Arc Components of a Reflex Arc A. Receptor - reacts to a stimulus B. Afferent pathway (sensory neuron) - conducts impulses to the CNS C. Interneuron - consists of one or more synapses in the CNS (most are in the spine) D. Efferent pathway (motor neuron) conducts impulses from CNS to effector. E. Effector - muscle fibers (as in the Hamstring muscle) or glands responds by contracting or. A reflex occurs when nerve impulses travel over a simple neuron pathway called a reflex arc. Reflex arcs have five basic parts: receptors, sensory neurons, interneurons, motor neurons, and effectors. 1. Receptors located in the skin or sense organs detect a stimulus and create an impulse. Categories of Reflexes. Reflexes can either be visceral or somatic. Visceral reflexes involve a glandular or non-skeletal muscular response carried out in internal organs such as the heart, blood vessels, or structures of the GI tract. They utilize neurons of the autonomic nervous system to elicit their actions. Start studying Peripheral Nervous System and Reflex Activity.

The reflex arc, as defined by Sir Charles Sherrington in the early s, provides the simplest physiological explanation of how reflexive activity in the body works, specifically: Sensory system receptors (tactile, auditory, visual, olfactory, gustatory, vestibular, proprioceptive or viscera sensory neurons) detect a change in the environment. The Nervous system is a specialized system in animals. This system aids in the coordination of voluntary and involuntary actions, reflex actions in our body. The nervous system consists of nerve cells (neurons). They transmit messages in the form of electrical impulses through neurons and convey to our sense organs. Human nervous system - Human nervous system - Reflex actions: Of the many kinds of neural activity, there is one simple kind in which a stimulus leads to an immediate action. 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. -Somatic reflexes that are mediated by the spinal cord. -Occur without involvement of the higher brain centers, although the brain is "advised" of most spinal reflex activity and can facilitate, inhibit, or adapt it.-Continuous facilitating signaling is needed from the brain for normal spinal reflex activity.
