Reflexes

Postby Revenged » Sat Oct 07, 2006 10:58 pm

I understand that in a knee jerk reflex that the nerve impulse passes by a "relay neurone" from a sensory neurone to a motor neurone in the spinal cord...

Questions:

- Are the neurones involved in reflexes autonomic neurones?

- Do 'protective' reflexes (e.g. knee jerk) have different reflex pathways to 'regulatory' reflexes (e.g. vestibulo-ocular reflex?)

- What are the clinical uses of measuring reflexes?

Any help will be appreciated...

what's the definition of autonomic neuron?

clinical uses? not that hard to imagine why isn't it...put some thought into it.

If you expect us to do your homework post nothing, we don't do that. We help and give hints (this is what mith was trying to do) but won't answer for you.
