Take a closer look at that near-fall -- just before you sighed in relief from a crisis averted. In a millisecond, your body sent an SOS to your brain that it had lost balance, your feet shouted that they were sliding, your eyes scoured the room for something to grab, and then your hand responded to the signal zipping down from the brain.
