BAR REFLEX

n. in pathology, refers to an experience wherein an individual in recumbent position reacts with a lateral or vertical motion in one leg, accompanied by a similar response in the other leg. When diagnosed, this often indicates a damage to the anterior part of the brain, specifically the frontal lobe.

BAR REFLEX: "There are instances when injury to the frontal lobe could possibly result in a bar reflex."
