Muscle Receptors and Nerve Reflexes
Reflexes are automatic and subconscious reponses to changes within and outside the body. It involves sensing a stimulus and generating appropriate response. Reflex arc governs the operation of reflexes and its function is to perform automatic responses without conscious thought. The major components of the reflex arc includes receptor, sensory neuron, interneuron, motor neuron and effector organ. The types of reflexes include Stretch reflex, Golgi tendon reflex, Withdrawal or flexor reflex. Reflex epilepsy is a form of reflex seizure caused by external stimulus or internal mental processes. Ataxia is the lack of muscle control and coordination of voluntary muscles. Neuralgia is a severe pain caused by damaged nerve caused by inflammation or injury.
