However, while the sign direction of the visual error feedback in the wedge prism is congruent with the real sign direction of the correction, the sign correction of the error feedback in the dove prism is reversed.
Different types of prism perturbations have been studied, including wedge prisms that result in a lateral displacement of the visual field [6,7,29, 30] and dove prisms that result in a one axis reversal of the visual field [9,11].
To analyse the possible relation of different cognitive processes to the adaptation mechanisms involved in visuomotor recalibration or strategic control during aging, we evaluated young, middle-age, and older participants' performance in a throwing task while donning either wedge or dove prisms, respectively.
