Why Is Reflex Arc Important?

Answer

In animals, the reflex arc refers to the neutral pathway that controls action response. Its importance is that it allows reflex action to react relatively faster by activating the spinal motor neurons in the spinal cord without the delay of routing signals through the brain. There are two types of reflex arc; somatic reflex arc (affecting muscles) and autonomic reflex arc (affecting inner organs).
