ASU looking for volunteers to take part in an aging research study

Kyle Elliott, Project Coordinator, ASU

Wanted: Participants in an aging research study at Arizona State University. The study, titled “Acquisition and Generalization of Functional Task-Specific Motor Training in Older Adults,” is designed to test whether older adults can acquire and generalize learned information after task-specific training of their upper extremity (arm and hand) from one task to another, and if these processes are influenced by memory, spatial or other cognitive abilities. In short, this research aims to study how aging affects motor learning.

This study is non-invasive and mostly requires short, repetitive movements of your arm and hand. Requirements for inclusion in this study are that you must be 55 or older and have no known neurological conditions that could affect your ability to move your arm or hand.
