Sign in via OpenAthens. The Retina Meister, Tessier-Lavigne Although reflexes are highly adaptable to changes in behavioral goals, mainly because several different circuits exist to connect sensory and motor neurons, they cannot be directly controlled voluntarily.

In contrast, humans can also “forage” by using their hands to cook a meal or simply punch a few buttons on a telephone and order takeout. Most animals must search their environment for food when hungry.
