The Nature of the Influence of Speed on Adult Age Differences in Cognition.
Salthouse, Timothy A.
Developmental Psychology, v30 n2 p240-59 Mar 1994
Two studies of adults between the ages of 18 and 87 were conducted to determine the relations among age, motor speed, perceptual speed and 3 measures of cognitive performance: study time, decision time, and decision accuracy. Results indicated that increased age was associated with lower accuracy as well as with longer study and decision time. (MDM)
