Selective Anticipation for Events in Old Age.
Rabbitt, Patrick; Subhash, Vyas M.
Journal of Gerontology, v35 n6 p913-19 Nov 1980
Elderly people show preservation, or even enhancement, of data-driven control but loss of memory-driven control of selective attention. As people grow older they become more labile and more subject to control by external events. Old subjects remember, analyse, and employ smaller samples of the recent past. (Author)
