  • G. signals being sent to the spinal cord, which immediately
    blocks the release of chemicals.

  • H. chemicals being released that amplify signals to
    the spinal cord.

  • J. chemicals being released that numb the spinal cord
    and prevent signals being sent to the brain and
    pituitary gland.
