How to use "Babinski" in context?
The babinski reflex is a reflex that occurs when a patient's toes are stimulated vigorously on one side of the foot, near the big toe. The reflex is named after Dr. Charles Babinski, who first described it in 1908. The reflex results in a toe curl on the stimulated side. Babinski's reflex is very common, occurring in up to 80% of healthy people, and is generally harmless. It can, however, be a sign of a more serious condition, such as peripheral neuropathy.
