Example text

11 40 A diagram of a simple reflex loop in a vertebrate. Stretching the muscle sends a signal via an axon to the spinal cord. This sensory input then connects with a motor neuron that signals the muscle to move. When a physician taps a knee tendon with a mallet, the tendon stretches, and just such a signal is sent to the patient’s spinal cord. The motor neuron then fires, causing the leg to jerk. In general, the function of this reflex is to reduce the stress on the tendon; in the physician’s office, it serves as a basic test of the nervous system.

Neurons carry electrical impulses between locations via axons. They form networks of varying complexity, with the brain, a dense cluster of neurons, being the most complex. This section begins with insights into neurons and how they work, moves on to how neurons communicate with each other and with tissues and organs within an animal, and concludes with how the CNS functions as a coordination center for behavior.
