Continuing our studies of the nervous system, here it’s a video showing a reflex act.

stimulus → receptor → sensory neurone → relay neurone → motor neurone → effector → response

In this case, the stimulus is the temperature, the receptors are the thermal receptors in your skin, the effectors are the muscle contraction, the response when the arm bends and the coordinator is the spinal cord.
