Foetal, Primitive and Postural reflexes

Post by LeslieK » Sat Oct 16, 2010 3:32 pm

Can someone please tell me:
- which are each one of these reflexes?
- when they appear in humans?
- how and when they integrate?

I read that a fetal reflex, the Fear Paralysis Reflex, converts into the Moro reflex. Is yes, how the FPR and the Moro reflex can coexist in an older child (say 10 years old?) Others say that the FPR integrates into the flexion reflex. Who is correct?

Can someone recommend a good book/articles to study reflexes in-depth?.

Many thanks!
