PORRAS-KATTZ, Eneida  y  HARMONY, Thalia. Neurorehabilitation: a diagnostic and therapeutic method to prevent brain lesion sequelaes in newborn and infants. Bol. Med. Hosp. Infant. Mex. [online]. 2007, vol.64, n.2, pp.125-135. ISSN 1665-1146.

Neurohabilitation is an early therapeutic and diagnostic method to prevent brain lesion sequelaes in newborn and infants in risk of brain injury that was developed in Hungary by Katona. It is based on the view of brain plasticity in young nervous system and considers the repetition of certain therapeutic exercises based on activation of the elementary sensorimotor patterns that are human specific. These elementary sensorimotor patterns are very similar to ultimate (adult) motor activities. The elementary sensorimotor functions are activated by the gravity through the vestibular system and are under the control of the basal gangliae, the reticular system and the paleocerebellum. The method needs a very active family participation, but offers the advantage that can be used in any pediatric service and doesn't require specialized materials.

Palabras clave : Neurohabilitation; brain injuries; newborns and infants in risk; Katona method; brain plasticity; elementary neurosensorimotor patterns.
