Between and within individuals effects of Visual Contrast Sensitivity on Perceptual Matching. Processing Speed and associated Memory in Older Adults

Anstey, Kaarin; Butterworth, Peter; Borzycki, Maria; Andrews, Sally


Background: Although cross-sectional studies have demonstrated associations between visual contrast sensitivity and cognitive test performance, it remains unclear whether peripheral visual or perceptual factors explain the association. Objective: We aimed at determining whether reducing static contrast of the study stimuli would simulate the performance deficits on measures of processing speed and associative memory that are associated with aging. Methods: We investigated the mechanism by which...[Show more]
