Changes in coordinated eye and hand movements with aging were studied in normal young and elderly subjects. Electrooculograms, flexor and extensor electromyograms, and potentials representing hand movements were recorded and used to evaluate the performance in aiming tasks. The parameters that reflect motor functions did not change significantly with aging in both eye and hand movements. However, elderly subjects commonly showed increases in reaction times of the initial (open-loop) movements… CONTINUE READING
