Why does a larger number of neural pathways make adaptation easier for a species? Why does it increase their chances of survival?

Thanks for your help.

I assume it has something to do with voluntary and involuntary responses? I don't quite understand the question.

Not completely sure about this as I haven't done adaptation and the like since my A levels a few year ago.

More nerve pathways --> greater responses from stimuli --> more physiological reactions --> quicker change in circumstances to avoid stimuli ---> greater chance of survival.

Just an idea.

Hope this helps!
