Muscle functions mainly in two modes the ‘fight or flight’ (sympathetic), and ‘rest and digest’ (parasympathetic) which are controlled by the nervous system. Whenever we stretch, parasympathetic mode gets triggered and we feel relaxed and calm. On stretching, endorphins are released by our pituitary gland and we experience the analgesic effect. During sleep, our muscles get contracted due to which muscle cells also shrink but while stretching the blood circulation improves and the muscles release unnecessary tension caused due to contraction, and thus, we feel so good.
Hearing is the fastest human sense. We know that the speed of light is greater than the speed of sound but when it comes to senses, it involves detection, transmission, and processing of the signal. Our ear is capable of receipting and recognizing sounds in just 0.05 seconds which is faster than any other sense such as touch and sight takes about 0.2 seconds. The direct vibrations of the hairs on the receptor cells caused by sound waves instantaneously result in nerve firing and sending a signal to the brain.
