How does processing of sensory information change with age?

The processing of sensory information can change in different ways as people age. Here are some general changes that can occur.

1. Vision: As people age, their eyes may become less able to adjust to changes in lighting, and they may have difficulty seeing in low light or distinguishing colors. They may also have more difficulty with depth perception and may experience glare or halos around lights.

2. Hearing: Many people experience age-related hearing loss, which can make it harder to distinguish between sounds and understand speech. They may also have difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds.

3. Touch: Some older people may experience a decline in their sense of touch, which can affect their ability to detect pain or temperature changes.

4. Smell and taste: Aging can affect the sense of smell and taste, making it harder to distinguish between different flavors and smells.

5. Balance: As people age, their balance may become less steady, increasing the risk of falls. These changes can affect how people interact with their environment and may impact their quality of life.

However, it is imperative to note that not everyone experiences these changes to the same extent, and there are things that people can do to maintain their sensory abilities, as they age. Such as, staying active, and engaging in activities that stimulate the senses.
