We report a large single experiment in middle-aged to older adults (n = 89), classified by hypertensive status. Our design addresses the question of regions related to manipulation and representation, most particularly comparing spatial and verbal working memory. A control, memory search, and 2-back running memory task were… CONTINUE READING
