"Reflex arc is a specialized type of neuron pathway. The reflex arc is like a one-way street and is used a defensive mechanism. You pull your hand away from a flame not because you consciously think to do it, but because the ANS system senses danger and immediately reacts.Â The reflex arc has three separate pathways.Â The one way street, then the two way street using sensory and motor neurons, and finally the three way street using sensory, motor, and interneurons."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
