Abstract

Although hundreds of studies have been conducted in the separate fields of cognitive aging and warnings, little is known about the intersection of aging and warnings. In recent years, there has been a growth in interest regarding how age-related declines in cognitive functioning might affect different stages of the warning process. This paper discusses how chronological age may be used in warnings research as a means of determining whether warnings are processed effectively. Generalizations to other special subpopulations are made.
