Summary of Spinal cord reflexes
Reflexes are rapid, automatic responses to particular stimuli that cause the same response every time. Spinal cord reflexes are stereotyped and dependable motor responses, such as the stretch of a muscle. The neuronal circuit involved is called the reflex arc. The reflex arc includes the sensory receptors, the sensory afferent nerves, the interneurons in the spinal cord, and the motor neurons.
