This paper provides an overview of the value of a structured neonatal neurological examination that may be performed in different settings, from routine examination to research settings. We will report how a structured neurological examination can help to identify infants with central and peripheral nervous system involvement. We also describe a short but structured proforma to be used for the routine examination of full-term infants. We will finally describe a quantitative assessment to be used in research settings.
