ONTOLOGY REPORT - ANNOTATIONS


Term:abnormal pilomotor reflex
go back to main search page
Accession:MP:0001492 term browser browse the term
Definition:anomaly in the involuntary bristling of hairs that occurs when an organism is cold or experiences strong emotions such as fear or awe
Comment:The pilomotor reflex occurs in many mammals; for example, porcupines raise their quills when threatened. Piloerection as a response to cold or fear is vestigial in humans; as humans retain only very little body hair, the reflex (in humans) now provides no known benefit.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: abnormal piloerection response
 related_synonym: cutis anserina;   goosebumps;   horripilation
