Electrodiagnosis, and Neuromotor Examination of the Limbs. EMG applications quickly led to the discovery that given appropriate visual and auditory feedback of amplified, raw muscle signals, individuals could isolate and control single motor units within the recording radius of fine-wire electrodes. From his seminal studies in. Neuromotor development is the process of change in motor behavior related to the age of the individual. Knowledge of neuromotor development is fundamental to understanding the development of functional movement and employing effective strategies for the evaluation and treatment of patients with neurological conditions across the lifespan.   Abstract. The adult nervous system is essentially a static system (or one which is in decline) and the clinical neurological examination is therefore cross-sectional. The paediatric neurologist, however, has to examine all of the various pathways of the nervous system, mindful of the timing of the appearance (and disappearance) of various developmental by: 5. a. Lower limbs - arise from a squat (or a chair with arms folded) b. Upper limbs - raise arms above head 5. Visual fields, pupils and eye movements 6. Motor exam a. Pronator drift b. Finger-to-nose testing with eyes closed c. Motor tone d. Hand grips 7. Sensory exam (already performed with Romberg and finger-to-nose testing) 8.

We are born to move, but learn to move skillfully. When people run, walk with an artificial limb, throw a baseball, hit a tennis ball, play the piano, dance, or operate a wood lathe, they are engaged in the performance of a type of human behavior called motor skills. Every motor skill in our repertoire is the product of a long and often arduous process of acquisition. 1.
