Plude et at. (1986) asked a group of young and old adults (mean ages 21 and 67, respectively, and equated for static visual acuity) to draw a cube to command. 98.

The older subjects were also less accurate than the young in judging the adequacy of cube drawings that were distorted to varying degrees. The elderly were less accurate than the young in discriminating between distorted and undistorted cubes.
