Reduced inter-hemispheric interference in ageing: Evidence from a divided field Stroop paradigm

Published in:┬áBrain and Cognition, Volume 122, April 2018, 26-33 Abstract “One of the most important structural changes that occur in the brain during the course of life relates to the corpus callosum, the largest neural pathway that connects the two cerebral hemispheres. It has been shown that the corpus callosum, and in particular its anterior sections, endures a process of degeneration in ageing. Hence, a primary question is whether such structural changes in the brain of older adults have functional consequences on inter-hemispheric communication. In particular, whether the atrophy of the corpus callosum in ageing may lead to a higher… Read More
