The Bell–Magendie law laid the foundation for the broader thesis that input-output reflex action is the modus operandi of the nervous system in general. This broader tenet was given structure by the venerable English neurologist, John Hughlings Jackson (1832–1911) who proposed that the nervous system could be modeled as a phylogenetically arranged hierarchy of reflex arcs. His idea was that there was a caudal to rostral progression of the reflexes, with the more rostral reflexes being built upon and subjugating the more caudal reflexes.
