Working memory (WM) is essential for normal cognitive function, but shows marked decline in aging. Studies have shown that the ability to attend selectively to relevant information amongst competing distractors is related to WM capacity. The extent to which WM deficits in aging are related to impairments in selective attention is unclear. To investigate the neural mechanisms supporting selective attention in WM in aging, we tested a large group of older adults using functional magnetic… CONTINUE READING
