What Are Reflexes?

A reflex is an involuntary (say: in-vah-lun-ter-ee), or automatic, action that your body does in response to something — without you even having to think about it. You don’t decide to kick your leg, it just kicks. There are many types of reflexes and every healthy person has them. In fact, we’re born with most of them.

Reflexes protect your body from things that can harm it. For example, if you put your hand on a hot stove, a reflex causes you to immediately remove your hand before a “Hey, this is hot!” message even gets to your brain.
