The purpose of the research is to explore basic features of individual’s attention and short-term memory through an online task and a series of questionnaires. More specifically, this project will allow us to examine, firstly, how short-term memory performance is affected by normal aging as measured by the Oxford Memory Test (OMT) app and secondly test whether short-term memory is modulated by genetic status, gender and their interactions. 

Participation: 403 volunteers from the Cambridge BioResource took part in this study.

Organisation: This study was organised by the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford. For further details about their work, please visit the Experimental Psychology website here.
