Correlations among rates of change in sensory and cognitive functioning in adulthood were evaluated. Measures of Vision, Hearing, Memory, Speed and Verbal ability were obtained in 1992, 1994, and 2000 in the Australian Longitudinal Study of Aging (N = 2,087 at baseline). Data from 1,823 participants who undertook at least 1 clinical assessment were analyzed using latent growth curve models. A significant moderate-sized association between rates of change in Memory and Vision was found. This… CONTINUE READING
