It is well established that older adults are more variable in their force output and that this age-related decrement is mediated by visuomotor processing. The purpose of this investigation was to examine whether the type of visual display impacts age-related differences in the control of force output. In order to address this question, young and old participants produced constant isometric force via index finger abduction to 3 force levels [5, 10, and 20% of their maximal voluntary contraction… CONTINUE READING
