Perception of visual motion declines during healthy aging, and evidence suggests that this reflects decreases in cortical GABA inhibition that increase neural noise and motion bandwidths. This is supported by neurophysiological data on motion perception in senescent monkeys. Much less is known about deficits in higher level form vision. For example, face perception of frontal views remains relatively constant from adolescence through age 70 with a modest decline thereafter. However, we have… CONTINUE READING
