Recapturing the Physical Activity Experiences of the Old: A Study of Three Women

Sandra O'Brien Cousins and Patricia A. Vertinsky

Few studies have tried to describe in detail the actual lifetime exercise experiences of very old women. In this paper, in-depth, guided life-course interviews with three women born in or before 1900 are used to shed light upon the social forces affecting the physical activities of young girls before the turn of the century. The late-life exercise patterns of these very old women appear to be rooted in very different ways to their past. However, the information gleaned from the interviews supports the early activation hypothesis that young girls at the turn of the century who were afforded opportunities and social support to develop physical skill in sport-type activities, or were physically challenged in domestic or farm labor, still appreciate and take advantage of the health-promoting aspects of exercise over 80 years later.

Facilitating the Use of Online Visual Feedback: Advance Information and the Inter-Trial Interval?

Darian T. Cheng, Gerome A. Manson, Andrew Kennedy, and Luc Tremblay

Cheng et al. (2008) showed that when goal-directed reaching movements are performed with a 2.5 s inter-trial interval (ITI) under a randomized visual feedback schedule, individuals use online visual information on trial n to perform efficient online corrections on trial n + 1 (i.e., “reminiscence” effect). These results persisted even when participants were given knowledge of the up-coming vision condition. In this study, the ITI was extended to 5 s in an attempt to negate any effects of the preceding trial. Results from this study revealed that trials with vision were always more accurate than trials performed without vision, suggesting that individuals relied significantly on online information. Furthermore, aiming precision improved when participants knew the vision condition before each trial. It is thus suggested that the reminiscence effects are not longer evident with a 5 s ITI, which in turn allows prior knowledge of visual feedback to influence the use of online vision.

Feasibility and Effectiveness of a Biography-Based Physical Activity Intervention in Institutionalized People With Dementia: Quantitative and Qualitative Results From a Randomized Controlled Trial

Doris Gebhard and Filip Mess

-based approaches are broadly used in other health-enhancing contexts, for example, in reminiscence therapy with people with dementia ( Elfrink, Zuidema, Kunz, & Westerhof, 2018 ). Furthermore, research has shown that biography-based approaches have great potential in the field of physical activity ( Malthouse
