    What are reflexes?

    Reflexes are unlearned involuntary responses that happen automatically when a stimulus is present. These responses are not consciously controlled and are often essential for survival. They serve as a rapid and immediate reaction to a specific stimulus, without the need for prior experience or learning. Reflexes can be observed in various parts of the body, such as the nervous system, muscles, and organs, and they play a crucial role in protecting the body from harm and maintaining homeostasis.
