Comment[edit]

"a reduction of physical movements in an individual." This needs to be clearified. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.238.84.23 (talk) 12:38, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Seems clear enough to me.--Miniapolis (talk) 18:11, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Catatonia?[edit]

I am not an expert on mental health, so I did not want to add something I was not sure was correct, but would it be appropriate to add catatonia as a "related" article? --Jprg1966 (talk) 15:55, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

would this include slowed gait?[edit]

would this include slowed gait?

Psychomotor retardation can be caused by copper deficiency[edit]

Sources for examples?[edit]

Searching for this term in journal articles and in the sources seem to imply that it's only a slowing of individual physical movements (as opposed to decreased ability to carry out daily activities, though that would certainly be related). The examples given in the body of the article seem to be something else entirely. Can we get a source for each example? 72.174.158.241 (talk) 00:23, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
