Purpose and hypothesis: Palmomental reflex is considered to be a primitive reflex and related to pathologic processes. The reflex can be obtained from every individual by electrophysiologic measures. There have been no reports concerning submental, orbicularis oris and masseter muscle reflex responses provoked by median nerve stimulation in healthy elderly individuals and patients with dementia up to now.
