What are two reflexes?
Accordingly, what are examples of reflexes?
A few examples of reflex action are:
- When light acts as a stimulus, the pupil of the eye changes in size.
- Sudden jerky withdrawal of hand or leg when pricked by a pin.
- Coughing or sneezing, because of irritants in the nasal passages.
- Knees jerk in response to a blow or someone stamping the leg.
Additionally, what are body reflexes? A reflex is an involuntary (say: in-VAHL-un-ter-ee), or automatic, action that your body does in response to something — without you even having to think about it. You don't decide to kick your leg, it just kicks. There are many types of reflexes and every healthy person has them.
Consequently, what are the three reflexes?
- Rooting reflex. This reflex starts when the corner of the baby's mouth is stroked or touched.
- Suck reflex. Rooting helps the baby get ready to suck.
- Moro reflex. The Moro reflex is often called a startle reflex.
- Tonic neck reflex.
- Grasp reflex.
- Stepping reflex.
What is the purpose of reflexes?
Reflexes protect the body from harm. The process of the sensory neuron carrying the stimulus to the spinal column and brain, and then the brain sending a message to the motor neuron is called a reflex arc.
