We investigated the purported association between developmental changes in the efficiency of online reaching corrections and improved action representation. Younger children (6-7 years), older children (8-12 years), adolescents (13-17 years), and young adults (18-24 years) completed a double-step reaching paradigm and a motor imagery task. Results showed similar nonlinear performance improvements across both tasks, typified by substantial changes in efficiency after 6 or 7 years followed by… CONTINUE READING
