Stimulus and response
As we saw in the topic "The nervous system", we relate to the environment that surrounds us, receiving information from our environment, integrating it, preparing a response and making that response. Thus, we adapt to the different circumstances that surround us and we can live.
- Muscular response: there is a movement in which the locomotor system or the viscera intervenes. These responses are short and short-lived. Two types of muscular response are distinguished:
- Glandular response: the endocrine glands release chemicals (hormones) that act on the target organs. This response is slow and its action can be very long-lasting.
