Description

Explore the relationship between cognitive development and movement in infants. Learn about the maturational perspective on development, from primitive reflexes controlled by the brainstem/spinal cord to equilibrium reactions governed by the cerebral cortex. Discover how recent evidence challenges the idea of unidirectional control of early motor behavior.
