Interventions in experimental groups include acquisition, retention after 24 hours, and retention after one week(retention 2). Motor memory task included performing a finger sequence, after which a complete simulation Supplement practice of motor imagery for the experimental group and a book study was performed for the control group for 15 minutes. Statistical analysis was an analysis of variance with repeated measures (to determine the effectiveness of motor imaging practice) as well as Bonferroni's post hoc test to identify significant improvement and covariance analysis test to compare two groups (motor imagery and control).
The results of this study showed that there is a significant difference between the two groups in retention 2 (F = 87.9, P = 0.005), and motor imagery protracted further gains in performance rather than the control group.
The results showed that the use of motor imagery practice as supplemental practice made significant improvements in different stages. Also, the results showed that motor imagery training is effective in improving motor memory consolidation in the elderly after one week.
