OBJECTIVE The primary objective was to determine whether age deficits in implicit sequence learning occur not only for second-order probabilistic regularities (event n - 2 predicts n), as reported earlier, but also for first-order regularities (event n - 1 predicts event n). A secondary goal was to determine whether age differences in learning vary with level of structure. METHOD Younger and older adults completed a nonmotor sequence learning task containing either a first- or second-order… CONTINUE READING
