When do reflexes become no longer needed in the brain?

  • As the brain matures, these reflexes become “integrated” and are no longer active or needed. In many cases, these reflexes do not fully integrate, and are thus considered “retained.” Depending on the particular reflex that is retained, different areas of functioning will be delayed.
