[Aging and procedural memory. Study of a series of tests on microcomputers].


The authors have assessed perceptual motor tasks involving the learning of the mouse control by locking at a Macinthosh computer screen during three consecutive sessions. Tests were performed by 102 control subjects aged between 16 and 85 years. Concerning age, there was a significant time difference (ANOVA) but improvement was the same for all subjects. Educational level and IQP results didn't influence procedural performance. Men were faster in three tasks. We can argue that implicit learning abilities appear before explicit memory and within the adult life span there appears to be little significant deterioration in implicit memory abilitie.
