User: is dark adaption faster than light adaption?

User: describe the steps of a stretch reflex that occurs when the doctor taps you on your patellar ligament

Weegy: When the doctor taps on your knee, you respond by kicking your leg. This occurs quickly, before you even realize that you did it. Another reflex is pulling your hand away from a painful or hot or freezing item quickly, before realizing you did it. [ Another is blinking when something touches your eye. And gagging when you something is placed down your throat (like the doctor telling you to say "ah" while he/she shoves a popsicle stick into the back of your mouth). All of these reflexes are motor responses to sensory information... where the movement is of the same body region that sensed the stimulus. You will see that these reflexes occur because the sensory neurons that bring the stimulus information into the spinal cord synapse directly or nearly directly onto motor neurons that lie in that area of the spinal cord that the sensory neurons entered. You will see on the spinal nerves page that each region of the body has sensory neurons for it and motor neurons that control it within the same region of the spinal cord. ]
