PediNeuroLogic Exam: 6 Month Old: Normal: Postural Reflexes - Lateral Propping
Lateral propping or protective extension is essential for the baby to be able to sit independently. This postural reflex develops at 5 to 7 months of age. Anterior propping actually develops first, then lateral propping. For anterior propping the baby will extend the arms forward to catch himself and prevent falling forward. Lateral propping occurs when the baby is falling to one side or the other and he extends the arm laterally to catch himself. Asymmetric lateral propping can be an early sign

What Killed the Mammoths? Could It Have Been a Killer Plague?
This BioBulletin Web site takes an in-depth look at attempts to answer the question of what killed off the woolly mammoth. The site includes text, videos, photographs, and interviews with key scientists. The Introduction explains why the woolly mammoth's extinction is particularly puzzling and the thought process that led Ross MacPhee to investigate whether a highly lethal infectious disease was responsible. Tusks on the Tundra covers the 18-day expedition MacPhee and others took north of the Ar

PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Abnormal: Primitive Reflexes - Suck, Root
There is some sucking but it is not as vigorous or sustained as it should be. The pacifier can be easily pulled from the mouth. There is no root reflex, which is a definite abnormality, and this baby has had problems with feeding. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.

PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Positions - Ventral Suspension
The baby is placed in the prone position, suspended in the air by the hand placed under the chest. The baby's head position, back and extremities are observed. The head should stay in the same plane as the back. The back should show some resistance to gravity and not be simply draped over the hand on the chest. The extremities should maintain some flexion tone and not dangle in extension. Ventral suspension is a very good way to assess a baby's neck and trunk tone. A neuroscience tutorial focusi
