Liao, Min-Ju, Jagacinski, Richard J. and Greenberg, Neil (1995): Quantifying the Performance Limitations of Older Adults in a Target Acquisition Task. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 39th Annual Meeting 1995. p. 961.

The acquisition times of older adults in a target acquisition task were a strong linear function of the acquisition times of younger adults, which was regarded as evidence of generalized slowing in aging. Older adults were found to have greater spatial variability of submovement endpoints for higher submovement velocities. This elevated motor noise is considered to be a primary cause of their slower performance. Supplementary auditory displays of the subjects' own position or velocity did not improve performance, which suggests that perceptual noise in this task is not a primary limiting factor. Older adults exhibited a repetition effect while younger adults exhibited a contrast effect when performing sequences of varied movements. This difference suggests that older adults may plan their movements individually, while younger adults plan a sequence of movements.
