Reflexive Response to Stimuli (Reactive Response)

A general paradigm for behavior is Perceive-Think-Act. However, in order to react quickly to dynamic environmental events, some architectures respond instantly to external stimuli, a quality often called reflexiveness. This may lend the system some extra speed when the event has been experienced previously (i.e., the reflex may be learned as well as innate) and the reaction can be performed instantly without having to plan a response. Other systems always deliberate before acting.
