Our brain's capacity for adaptation allows us to interact meaningfully with an ever-changing environment. Experimental evidence suggests that the time course of sensorimotor adaptation is preserved or only moderately degraded in old age, and that seniors benefit from a previous adaptive experience even more than younger subjects. However, experimental evidence suggests that sensorimotor adaptation seems to be associated with a higher computational load in the elderly. We discuss two possible… CONTINUE READING
