Abstract:This study addressed the interaction between age and the informational content of feedback on learning an isometric force-production task. Healthy men and women (30 young adults: 20 to 35 years; 30 older adults: 55 to 70 years) were randomly assigned to a certain type of feedback: knowledge of results or kinetic feedback. Results showed no differences between young and older adults in the accuracy and consistency of performance. There were no interactions of age with any of the feedback-related variables. These findings suggest that the effects of augmented feedback on motor learning are similar in both young and older adults.
