Maturation refers to physical growth and development of the body - especially the nervous system. Maturation underlies the orderly sequence observed in the unfolding of many basic abilities, particularly motor abilities, such as crawling and walking.Learning Objective PGAT_COON_2016_3.1.5 – Explain how the maturation of the body and nervous system underlies the orderly development of various skills; and discuss early motor development, including the order and rate of maturation, the difference between cephalocaudal and proximodistal development, and how learning contributes to the development of these basic motor skills.
