Brain imaging studies have reported age-related differences in brain activation for attentional control functions, such as inhibition and task-switching. However, age-related differences in brain activation patterns in more than one attentional control task have rarely been studied in the same group of participants. In this study, younger and older adults completed a modified Stroop task with interference and switching conditions, using functional near infra-red spectroscopy. While interference… CONTINUE READING
