Dr. Traci Seidman answered

Specializes in Clinical Psychology

This is a slowing down of your motor responses like your eye-hand coordination or the general movement of your limbs and reflex responses, for example, like hitting the brakes quickly enough in your car to avoid an accident. Psychomotor retardation can be a symptom of depression, and can also occur in response to certain drugs and medications or medical conditions.
