Visual Abilities in older Adults Explain Age-Differences in Stroop and Fluid Intellegence but Not Face Recognition: Implications for the Vision-Cognition Connection

Dain, Stephen; Andrews, Sally; Drobny, Juliette V; Anstey, Kaarin


The associations among age, visual abilities and cognitive abilities were investigated using structural equation modeling. Measures of Visual Acuity, Colour Vision, Contrast Sensitivity, Stroop, Face Recognition and Fluid intelligence (Gf) were administered to a volunteer sample (n = 90) aged 60-87. Visual Acuity was associated with Gf even after controlling for chronological age. Age differences in Stroop were explained entirely by Colour Vision performance. However, neither Visual Acuity nor...[Show more]
