Prior research has shown that younger and older adults display similar amounts of IOR, but this research has not examined the time course of the process. Because elderly people may be slower to engage or disengage spatially based attention, the present experiment examined age differences in IOR at stimulus-onset asynchronies ranging from 50 ms to 3,000 ms. The results show… CONTINUE READING
