Question:

When you nod your head "yes", what type of movement are you using?

Anatomical Movements of the Body:

The body can move in several different directions, and these movements often have ''official'' names. For example, flexion of the elbow refers to bending the elbow, while extension of the elbow refers to straightening of the arm/elbow. Hip abduction refers to moving the leg away from the midline of the body (i.e. lifting the leg out to the side), while hip adduction refers to moving the leg towards the midline of the body (i.e. moving the leg back down from a side-raised position).
