This January 3, 2012 article on the BrainPhysics.com website talks about a study done on the elderly and on children.  The study looked to see if there was a difference in the accuracy of responses based on age.  The study found that children tended to be slow and not as accurate in their responses, but the elderly who were also slow to respond were actually quite accurate and that the slower response time in the elderly was probably because they were trying to be perfect and not make any mistakes.
