  2. Autonomic reflexes involve responses from??
    smooth and cardiac muscles and glands
  3. Reflex arc steps
    • Sensory receptor
    • Senory (afferent) Neuron
    • Interneuron
    • Motor (Efferent) Neruon
    • Effector organ (muscle or gland)
  4. Muscle Spindles: initiate __________________ results in muscle contraction prevention injury due to overstretching: contraction of _____________ and relaxtion of antaginist
    • stretch reflex
    • agonist
  5. Agonist
    muscle do on action
  6. antagonist
    does the opposite
  7. Golgi Tendon organs: Initate tendon relfexes can override ___reflexes relives excess tension on musces and their tendons causeing relaxation of the ____ and contraction of the ____
    • stretch
    • agontist
    • antagiontist
  8. ankel jerk reflex: striking the achillies tendon at the level of the ankle:
    • Normal respones is plantarflexion
    • diabetes nerosyphililis alcholism subarachnoid hemorage do not have this reflex
  9. Babinski Reflex: Stroke the sole of the foot
    • normal response is plantarflexion of the toes
    • abnormal dorsifexion
