Pahnomental reflex

  • A stimulus to the thenar area of the hand causes a reflex contraction of ipsilateral orbicularis oris and mentalis muscles.
  • It is a primitive reflex which is inhibited by frontal lobe as the child grows.
  • In frontal lobe lesions, inhibitory effect of frontal lobe is released → appearance of palmomental reflex.
