Spanish term or phrase: bradicefálico
I would appreciate any explanation or a site for the above term. Obviously it deals with the brain, and I suppose the translation should be "bradicephalic" but I do not know the meaning, and I am not sure about the equivalent term in English. Thank you.

English translation:No bradyphalic
Explanation:
Perdona, pero no he encontrado la palabra bradicefalia en ninguno de los diccionarios españoles.

En el diccionario de la Real Academia aparece el prefijo "bradi" (cuya definición literal es: elemento compositivo que entra en la formación de algunas voces españolas con el significado de lento. "Cefalia" se emplea para referirse a todo lo relacionado con la cabeza y el cerebro (por ejemplo Hidrocefalia). Por lo tanto sería "cabeza lenta". Sin embargo he mirado en el diccionario médico stedman y la palabra asociada a esta patología es "bradicinesia" (lentitud extrema de movimientos, en inglés "bradycinesia". En consecuencia de existir una patología relacionada con la lentitud en pensar la palabra correcta es la que propones: bradicefalia, y la traducción al inglés sería: "bradycephalia".

bradycephalic


Explanation:
Apparently, this means "flat-faced". The term seems to be used mostly in connection with dogs, and with Down syndrome. You need to spell it with a "y". Here are a couple of web sites:

Erasmo, Are you sure you have the right spelling??


Explanation:
I've never encountered this word (not while studying Medicine, not during my 17 years of practice). The prefix "brady" (or 'bradi', in Spanish) comes from Greek and means "slow".
The closest word I can think of is "braquiocefálico", translated as "brachycephalic", and meaning "related to the arm and head". For example, there is a nervous plexus in the shoulder area of all humans, called "brachycephalic".

Good luck!
