Mini Review


Andre Felipe Breda Andrade Costa, Ana Paula da Veiga Argus, Franciele Prestel Pisetta, Alberto Goncalves Evangelista.


Reflexes are a fundamental part of nervous system analysis. Various pathologies manifest themselves by disrupting the basic reflex functions inherent in the individual, some of which are fully developed at birth. For a complete clinical analysis, knowledge of the basic mechanisms of its functioning is required. The aim of this review is to demonstrate in a simplified way the mechanism of some of the main reflexes present in individuals, consolidating knowledge of great importance to the area. The focus is not on detailing the specifics of each reflex, but on the use of recent advances in research to accurately determine its visual effects as well as its effects on homeostasis, observed through clinical examinations.

Key words: Physiology; Reflexes; Nervous system; Healthcare.
