Fourteen undergraduate women (mean age 20) and 14 elderly women (mean age 70) executed a task requiring them to align a pointer with a target light in 5 positions. Elderly subjects had slower reaction and movement times. However, they were as capable as the younger women of correcting unanticipated movement errors. (SK)
