Modulation of attention networks serving reorientation in healthy aging

Figure 6.

Overall Findings. Healthy aging modulates the behavioral and neural responses underlying attentional reorientation. The decrement in reaction time to invalid versus valid trials increased as a function of aging. Younger adults uniquely utilized parietal alpha and FEF beta activity, mainly in response to invalid trials, but this compensatory process became exhausted with increasing age.
