reflex respone can be modified by the brain.

1)Reflex responses can be modified and can be overidden by a neuron between the brain &the motor neuron of reflex arc.

Babies-most neuron connections are not formed. When they learn something new they experience something and they branch out and connect to cells that were previously unconnected. When experiences are repeated-pathways that impulse travel along become stronger-means likely to transmit more impulses. Impulses that aren't used-die off
