There is a rich body of literature documenting age-related patterns of brain activity associated with the changes in cognitive function that are typical of normal aging (Park and Reuter-Lorenz, 2009). We are currently investigating the neurofunctional compensatory processes associated with aging in the domain of motor functions, using a variety of motor tasks, ranging from simple to complex movements, with both explicit and implicit tasks.
