What happens at the level of the neuron starting with stimulus and ending with a response?

The stimulus is detected by the sensory receptor. The sensory receptor stimulates a sensory neuron. The sensory neuron transmits to the interneuron in the spinal cord. The interneuron stimulates a motor neuron. The motor neuron communicates to the muscle. The muscle(effector) then produces the response allowing the body to respond to the stimulus.
