Older adults show impairments on auditory gap detection tasks and audio-visual temporal order judgment tasks. Do older adults also show deficits on visual gap detection and is this related to performance on audio-visual temporal order judgments?
Older adults do show deficits on visual gap detection; however, they perform as well as younger adults by 110 ms. Sensitivity on gap detection is related to threshold on the temporal order judgment task for younger adults, but not for older adults.
