EXERCISE 22 – HUMAN REFLEX PHYSIOLOGY OBJECTIVES 1. To define reflex and reflex arc . 2. To name, identify, and describe the function of each element of a reflex arc. 3. To indicate why reflex testing is an important part of every physical examination. 4. To describe and discuss several types of reflex activities; to indicate the importance of each; and to categorize each as a somatic or autonomic reflex action. NOTES: I. Components of a reflex arc: Sensory receptor Sensory neuron Integration center Motor neuron Effector Name and locate the above reflex arc components on models and diagrams. II. Types of reflexes: Somatic vs. Autonomic reflexes Cranial vs. Spinal reflexes Ipsilateral vs. Consensual reflexes Define and give examples of each type. III. Reflexes to do in lab: Be sure to follow directions in the lab text, answering the questions in book as you run the
