A 25 year-old male involved in a motorcycle accident was brought to your ER. The patient complains of being unable to move his legs voluntarily.
The doctor orders a CT but the CT is currently out of commission so you must do some inductive reasoning. One thing you must determine is the severity and location of the patient s lesion. You begin by scraping the bottom of their foot with the dull-pointed end of a reflex hammer starting at the heel moving to the small toe and then following the ball of the foot toward the big toe. The patient s foot demonstrates a Babinski s sign.
Answer the following questions and save your responses in a Microsoft Word document. Provide a scholarly resource in APA format to support your answers.
The term used for this condition (inability to move legs voluntarily) is called:
Name the parts of a basic reflex pathway.
Describe Babinski s sign and compare it to what a normal response would look like.
Why would one see a Babinski sign rather than a normal sign?
Why do you think this is not a first order neuron issue? Hint: What would you see (or not see) if the nerves were damaged?
Where along the spinal cord could you see a lesion in the CT for this patient?
