There has been no study of the effects of aging on the simple daily-life motor task such as forearm lifting with and without weight. The aim of this study was to investigate neural correlates of human brain between weighted and none-weighted arm lifting. Also we studied age-related alterations in normal aging brain when the task involves similar performance levels as in younger subjects.
