The human brain is not only the place where the sensory inputs are interpreted, but the place where neural impulses are generated after the complex process of interpretation.

The brief description of the path travelled by an impulse in the human brain is the following: the sensory inputs are recepted and interpreted in the different regions of the brain, then, the brain performs the function of generating neural impulses responses, that are classified as voluntary or involuntary, that are transported back, by the motor neurons, to the  different parts of human body.
