Capute AJ, Accardo PJ, Vining EPG, Rubenstein JE, Harryman S. 1978. Primitive reflex profile. Baltimore, MD: University Park Press, 91 pp. (Monographs in developmental pediatrics, v. 1)

Annotation: This book introduces physicians and therapists to the important role played by primitive reflexes in the evolution of motor function. The book contains two major sections. The first presents a historical perspective and reviews how reflexes have been the subject of detailed study by a variety of medical professionals. The second describes a quantitative descriptive profile of selected reflexes that has been developed to provide a clear, structured approach to more sophisticated analyses of reflexes and a more complete understanding of the role reflexes play in inhibiting the development of voluntary motor functioning. The book is extensively illustrated with charts, diagrams, and tables. It includes a bibliography and an index. [Funded in part by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]
