Reflex arc facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The path a signal of a reflex takes is called reflex arc. In many higher animals the nerve cells responsible for reflexes are not located in the brain, but in the spinal cord. This way, reflexes can be processed faster. Nerve cells in the brain still get feedback that the reflex action occurred.
