Washington, June 29 (ANI): Women are more accurate in hammering a nail in broad daylight than men, finds a new study.
Duncan Irschick and his colleagues, at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, measured hammering performances of men and women.
They found that men were more accurate than women when hammering under light deprivation, while women were more accurate in the light, regardless of target size.
"We believe that our research indicates that humans have remarkable compensatory ability during difficult motor tasks such as hammering in the dark," says Irschick
He is now planning future studies to focus on understanding how hammering ability evolves in humans from early development to adulthood. (ANI)
