How are reflexes different from the normal path that information would take through the body?

Answered by Guest

Reflexes dont travel to the brain, but instead go to the spinal chord/brain-stem and are hard-coded into our response system. This is because reflexes need to be instant in order to avoid damage.

If it takes somebody 2 seconds to process that a blue flame is hot, theyll already have third-degree burns.
