{Cognitive and sensorimotor factors associated with visual field dependence in the context of aging}

Conference Paper


Introduction Reliance on the visual frame of reference (FoR) for spatial orientation (visual field dependence) has been reported to increase with age. This has implications on old adults' daily living tasks as it affects attention, stability and adaptation capacities. We sought to establish whether factors that are both known to degrade with age and important for spatial orientation and sensorimotor control, namely reliance on the egocentric (proprioceptive-based) FoR, visual fixation stability and divided and selective attentional processing of complex visual scenes (useful field of view)
