This is in terms of Brain functions. This is an effect brought about by the passage of the nerve impulses from a sensory ending to the effector organ along divisions of the nerve fibre without traversing a synapse, Example,the vasodilation is resulting from the irritation of the conjunctiva; the reaction occurs even when the nerve fibre has been sectioned and thus isolated from the nervous centres.
