BACKGROUND Previous studies indicate that older adults, like young adults, can efficiently search for a briefly presented visual target defined by a single salient feature presented amidst background distractors. However, little is known about older adults' ability to identify the spatial location of targets during this aspect of preattentive processing. OBJECTIVE This study examined the extent to which older adults exhibit localization problems during feature search for a target with high… CONTINUE READING
