Abstract

This study examines which factors are most important for detecting age-related differences in studies on working memory (WM) and sentence comprehension (SC). Key articles chosen from all articles on Aging, WM and SC were analyzed according to five potential factors: 1) Sentence type tested; 2) Presentation method; 3) Number of participants; 4) Participant age range; and 5) On-line versus off-line measurements. Among the factors, age-related differences were observed for sentence type, participant age range, and on-line vs. off-line measurements. These factors should be considered when designing studies of sentence comprehension in aphasic patients, to avoid confounds of healthy aging effects.
