PURPOSE The fluctuations in force during a steady contraction can be influenced by age, vision, and level of physiological arousal. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of a stressor on the force fluctuations and information transmission exhibited by young, middle-aged, and older adults when a pinch-grip task was performed with and without visual feedback. METHODS Thirty-six men and women (19-86 yr) participated in a protocol that comprised anticipatory (30 min), stressor (15… CONTINUE READING
