A reduced ability to inhibit irrelevant information is regarded as a form of cognitive decline with aging. A series of studies examined the modality-specific effect in audio-visual information processing. However, they yielded mixed results depending on the modality and context in which stimuli and tasks were presented. In this regard, we tried to demonstrate the difference between aging groups, the younger and the older adult groups, in terms of their performance on the multi-sensory information processing.

Research Aim

  • Develop a mobile-based audio-visual contour identification test

  • Determine whether the characteristics of aged cognition would take a modality-specific roll in processing audio-visual information
