- null - Human Brain - Reflex Action
Write down the following activities in the correct order for a simple reflex arc:
(a) impulse travels in the motor fibre
(b) impulse travels in the sensory fibre
(c) effector organ stimulated
(d) impulse crosses the synapse
When we touch a hot plate unknowingly, then this heat is sensed by a receptor P present in our fingers. The receptor triggers and impulse in neuron Q which transmits the message to an organ R which is a part of the central nervous system. Here the impulse is passed on to a neuron S which in turn passes it to a yet another neuron T. The neuron T passes the impulse to a tissue U in our arm. The tissue U then contracts and pulls our hand away from the hot plate.
(a) What is the name of (i) receptor P (ii) neuron Q, and (iii) organ R?
(b) What is (i) neuron S, and (ii) neuron T?
(c) Name the tissue U.
(d) What name is given to the phenomenon in which hand is pulled away quickly from the hot plate?
(e) Name the effector in this whole process.
The gustatory receptors of our body are in one of the following organs. This organ is :
Fill in the following blank with suitable word :
A neuron which carries an impulse to the brain is called a ........... neuron.
