dc.description.abstract Sensorimotor reflexes have long been, and continue to be, an area of tremendous research in movement neuroscience. Here I aim to provide an account of some studies that have been crucial in advancing our understanding of the organization of reflex circuits, their function and their modulation during motor control. I review research ranging from early experiments in reduced animal preparations that investigated the basic building blocks of reflex circuits to more recent studies in humans that demonstrate remarkable tunability of reflexes in response to variety of contingencies related to the task, the body and the environment. By providing such an integrated account of the historical aspects and current view on reflex function, I attempt to bring out the stunning complexity of reflex machinery, as well as the incredible adaptability of this machinery despite its underlying complexity.
