A root reflex is obtained by gently stroking the cheek towards the lips. The baby should open the mouth towards the stimulus and turn the head to latch on to the object.

The unit is derived from the Open University course T211 on Design and Designing, but as well as stimulating interest in areas of concern for producers of design it might also provide an introduction to engineering, ma

PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Cranial Nerves
Examination of the baby's cranial nerve function is often accomplished by observing spontaneous activity. During crying, facial movement (Cranial Nerve 7) is observed for fullness or asymmetry. The quality and strength of the cry is a way of looking at Cranial Nerves 9 and 10 function. Sucking and swallowing assesses Cranial Nerves 5, 7, 9, 10, and 12 because all of these cranial nerves are involved in this complex act. Eye movements (Cranial Nerves 3, 4 and 6) can be assessed by using the vesti
