Model the neuron pathways involved in reflex actions, conscious sensations, voluntary movements, and memories.
MS-LS1-8. Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories.
Developing and Using Models - Develop and use a model to describe a phenomenon.
LS1.D: Information Processing - Each sense receptor responds to different inputs (electromagnetic, mechanical, chemical), transmitting them as signals that travel along nerve cells to the brain. The signals are then processed in the brain, resulting in immediate behaviors or memories.
Cause and Effect - Cause and effect relationships may be used to predict phenomena in natural systems.
