Neural Control of Behavior
The way in which an individual acts in response to a stimulus or situation is called “behavior.” Behavior is chiefly controlled by the central nervous system (i.e., brain and spinal cord). Behavior can be innate (present since birth) or is learned during a lifetime. Further it can be simple or complex. The simplest forms of the behavior are the “reflexes” which are innate in nature. For a reflexive behavior, the individuals may fail to perceive a conscious appraisal, as it primarily gets executed from the motor centers in the brain stem or spinal cord. Complex behavior, a varying motor action or response adjusted to the need of a situation, involves more than one component of the brain and is intricately regulated. A stimulus which is received at the sensory receptors is carried by the nerves to the sensory cortex which generates perception and further sends it to the cognitive and the effectors domains of the brain where complex neural processing constructs a behavior...
