Abstract

Based on Rabinowitz et al. pointed out that there is an association exists between finger tapping and attention. The proposal study was based on the previous study and increased the speed of finger tapping to test the effect of finger dexterity on the attention of older adults. In this work, we tested whether finger exercise will be able to improve the attention span of the older person by the way of increase the speed of finger taps. We also tested whether the faster the tapping of the fingers, the better the attention span of the older person.
