Abstract

Age-related declines in memory may be due in part to changes in the complexity of neural activity in the aging brain. Electrophysiological entropy provides an accessible measure of the complexity of ongoing neural activity. In the current study, we calculated the permutation entropy of the electroencephalogram (EEG) during encoding of relevant (to be learned) and irrelevant (to be ignored) stimuli by younger adults, older adults, and older cognitively declined adults. EEG entropy was differentially sensitive to task requirements across groups, with younger and older controls exhibiting greater control of encoding-related activity than older declined participants. Task sensitivity of frontal EEG during encoding predicted later retrieval, in line with previous evidence that cognitive decline is associated with reduced ability to self-initiate encoding-related processes.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 9. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 December 2018.
All research outputs
#2,090,247
of 13,976,883 outputs
Outputs from Brain Topography
#30
of 374 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#22,703
of 148,270 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Brain Topography
#1
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,976,883 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 85th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 374 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 148,270 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
