Withdrawal reflex or flexor reflex employs sensory neuron, interneuron and motor neuron.
it employs sensory and motor neurons
Interneurons in a withdrawal flex are located in the sensory neurons. This is taught in health.
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.
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.
sensory, interneuron, motor nueron
monsynaptic reflex arcs
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.
monosynaptic reflex arcs
No, it has 2 visceral motor neurons. A visceral reflex has a receptor, a sensory neuron, a processing center, and 2 visceral motor neurons.
A minimum of 3 neurons.
