Both require motor neurones to carry the nerve impulse to the effector in order for the muscle to contract carry out an action.
A reflex action is an "automatic" and sometimes involuntary action caused by the presence of a stimulus.The action requires no conscious thought and will happen naturally.An example is someone waving ther hand very close to your face, you will naturally blink.This is a reflex action.
We can move immediately without thinking or using our brain for example if you touch a hot kettle you immediately pull your hand. In that case, you didn't use your mind in thinking if you will get it or not. you just pull your hand immediately because of the reflex action.
a polysynaptic reflex
The reflex action of burning your hand would be jerking your hand away from the source of the heat
That was an automatic reflex.
The difference between reflex and voluntary action is that a reflex occurs naturally in response to some sort of stimulus and voluntary action is something that is consciously carried out. An example of a reflex action is gagging and an example of voluntary action is flinching when someone is going to hit you.
reflex action is an involuntary action which means to do something physically whereas voluntary action means to do something mentally
The difference between a reflex and a voluntary muscle is simply that a reflex is autonomic response to a stimulus thus making it involuntary. This in direct contradiction to a voluntary muscle movement with is done by making the conscious decision to do so.
No, it is by definition involuntary. The neural impulses which cause the action do not go through the brain at all.
Pupils reacts to light, narrowing in bright light and widening in poor light - so is a reflex action.
A reflex action is an action by which your body does subconsciously or naturally whereas a conscious action is an action that you intentionally respond and act towards.
No it is not a reflex action
AnswerBecause a reflex action is automatic and does not involve a thought process.Edit: A reflex action only has to go to the spinal cord and then back to the limb, whereas a voluntary reaction has to go to the brain to be processed and therefore takes longer.
walking:it is controlled by cerebellum reflex action:it is controlled by spinal cord
An involuntary action is a body process that occurs automatically regardless of external stimulus. In contrast, a reflex is an automated response to an external stimulus.
No, it is a reflex. More specifically it is known as a flexion reflex.
