Nervous system examination is crucial to identifying a type of lesion, its location, and its extent. Lower limb reflexes are an important part of this examination especially in a patient in coma. Dr. Mobeen discusses the foundations of lower limb examination in this webinar. Next part will present the clinical utility and lesion assessment based on the abnormal reflexes e.g. positive Babinski's sign (plantar reflex), or hyperreflexia vs. hyporeflexia etc.

Following topics are discussed:

  • Neurology examination. How to differentiate between upper and lower motor neuron lesions?
  • What is the difference between an upper motor neuron and a lower motor neuron?
  • Overview of the corticospinal tract or pyramidal tract.
  • What are spinal reflexes?
  • What is a reflex arc?
  • Components of a reflex arc.
  • What is the role of the upper motor neurons in the spinal reflexes?

Next part will discuss the clinical correlation of the spinal reflex abnormalities.




In this video we will learn about :

1. Upper and lower motor neurons.

2. Pyramidal tract and its function. 

3. Spinal reflexes.

4. Reflex arc of a simple reflex.
