The relation between postural movement and bilateral motor integration: comment on Lin, et al. (2012)

Percept Mot Skills. 2013 Oct;117(2):647-50. doi: 10.2466/15.10.PMS.117x23z9.

Abstract

In a recent study, Lin, Wu, Lin, Wu, Wu, and Kuo (2012) contributed to the theory of sensory integration by showing a high correlation between postural movement and bilateral motor integration. However, in their analysis, the authors excluded a subscale measuring reflex integration, since they regarded its items as being unconnected to postural movement and bilateral motor integration. This comment offers a complementary view and suggests that there may be a connection with reflex integration.
