Smooth pursuit responses to sinusoidal and triangular waveform targets were investigated in elderly and middle-aged subjects. The middle-aged pursued triangular targets with significantly lower gain than sinusoidal targets. In the elderly, pursuit gain was significantly lower than in the middle-aged under all target conditions. When all smooth eye movements… CONTINUE READING
