Age-Related Changes in Attention and Impulsivity in Young Schoolchildren

Abstract

Normative values of attention, impulsivity, response time, and response time variability were determined for seven- to ten-year-old children with the continuous performance Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA). An age-related increase in attention and a decrease in impulsivity, response time, and its variability were revealed. Differences in TOVA scores were studied for students of gymnasia and schools providing general education.
