Developmental trends of jumping reaction time by means of EMG in mentally retarded children.

Abstract

Developmental trends of jumping reaction time (RT) in mentally retarded children were studied cross-sectionally. Fifty-three boys, ranging in CA from 7 to 18 years, took part in the jumping RT task. RT measurements were obtained from EMG of an agonist muscle (rectus femoris). There was a significant decrease in RT with increasing CA. Correlation between RT… (More)
