How does the four major elements of a simple nervous pathway function during pain withdrawal reflex?

During a pain withdrawal reflex impulses are sent through different nerves and to the spinal cord. This reflex does not make it to the brain but only to the spinal cord. We call this involuntary action because we dont control reflexes. The sensory neurons are the first to recieve the impulse, then they travel to the interneurons, or associative neurons, and then they go to the motor neurons which carries the impulse to the central nervous system. Then the effector is the response, so in this case your musscle will contract.

What connects to sensory neurons?

You have three neurons in the reflex arc. You have the afferent, the intermediate and efferent neurons in the reflex arc. So the answer is intermediate neuron.

What neurons are involved in a reflex?

3 neurons are included in the reflex arc. They are: Afferent neurons (take the message to the spinal cord) (sensory) Association neurons (directs message to the efferent neuron and the brain) (report reflex to the brain) Efferent neurons (takes message to effector) (motor) Not all reflexes have interneurons.
