Background. The purpose of this study was to determine if the prioritization of postural control over secondary task performance is altered in younger and older adults under different conditions of postural threat. Methods. Fifteen healthy older adults (mean age = 69.53 +/- 5.78) and 15 younger adults (mean age = 22.00 +/- 2.17) performed Brooks' Spatial Letter Task (BST) while standing in four conditions of postural threat. Galvanic skin conductance (GSC) was collected to measure changes in… CONTINUE READING
