Two experiments were performed to assess age-related changes in sequential effects on choice reaction time (RT). Sequential effects portray the influence of previous trials on the RT to the current stimulus. In Experiment 1, three age groups (7-9, 10-12, and 18-25 years) performed a spatially compatible choice task, with response-to-stimulus intervals(More)
Nearly all staff members participate in the Experimental Psychology Graduate School (EPOS) or the Interuniversitary Graduate School for Psychometrics and Sociometrics (IOPS). The staff has close ties with the Cognitive Science Center of the University of Amsterdam (CSCA). The program focuses on two research themes: Developmental Processes and Brain and(More)
The current study presents the results of two experiments designed to assess developmental change in post-error slowing (PES) across an age range extending from 5 to 25 years. Both experiments employed two-choice tasks and manipulated response-to-stimulus intervals (RSIs). The results showed that PES decreased with advancing age; a disproportional(More)
