The Effect of Aging on the Stages of Processing in a Choice Reaction Time Task
Simon, J. Richard; Pouraghabagher, A. Reza
Journal of Gerontology, 33, 4, 553-60, Jul 78
Two experiments were conducted to determine the effect of aging on encoding and response selection stages of a choice reaction time task. Results suggested reducing stimulus discriminability may affect information processing prior to the encoding stage, but the encoding stage is the primary locus of the slowing which accompanied aging.
