Slowly But Surely
The next time you find yourself exasperated about the length of time a senior citizen takes to perform a task and wondering about their mental acuity, think again. Current studies have shown quite the contrary: the fact that an elder requires more time to respond or complete a task can actually demonstrate a healthy cognitive acuity.
Scientists conducted studies wherein both university students and 60plus adults were given a set of tasks to perform. Results reflected that, though the elderly participants generally had longer response times, they proved to be just as accurate as their younger counterparts. Even when an increase of speed was a determining factor, the accuracy of the aged did not seem to be affected. It was concluded that it was not a decreased mental aptitude that created the delayed response times, but rather the individual's diligence to ensure tasks were completed correctly.
