Practice for Movement

Asymmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex

The movement:

When the head turns to one side, the arms and legs extend on the same side while the arms and legs on the opposite side bend. This reflex promotes the coordination of arm / hand movement and visual stimuli. The muscles are exercised alternately on the right or left side. The function of the Asymmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex is to make a differentiation in the horizontal plane.
