CHAPTER 7: INFANT REFLEXES AND RHYTHMICAL STEREOTYPIES: Concept 7.1: Reflexes are the first forms of human movement and provide interesting insights into the process of motor development d. 1. During the "information encoding stage" of the reflexive movement phase the infant is primarily involved in: a. Gathering information by way of reflexive activity b. Storing information in the developing cortex gained through reflexive activity c. Decoding or processing information d. Both a and b e. Both b and c d. 2. During the "information decoding stage" of the reflexive movement phase the infant is primarily involved in: a. Gathering information by way of reflexive activity b. Storing information in the developing cortex gained through reflexive activity c. Both a and b are correct d. Decoding or processing information e. Encoding information d. 3. The "information encoding stage" of the reflexive movement phase roughly parallels Piaget's: a. Reflex stage b. Primary circular reactions stage c. Secondary circular reactions stage d.
