Question

Control of reflex action is through 


  1. Peripheral nervous system

  2. Autonomous nervous system

  3. Central nervous system

  4. All of them


Solution

The correct option is C

Central nervous system


A reflex action is a quick, automatic response to a stimulus from the environment that involves only the spinal cord which is a part of the central nervous system. This happens when the body doesn't get enough time to elicit a response. As a result, the body acts on an impulse before that impulse reaches the brain. 

There are two kinds of reflexes - spinal reflexes and brain reflexes. Both the reflexes are hence controlled by the central nervous system which comprises the brain and the spinal cord.
