It has previously been reported that temporal cueing leads to faster reaction times in young, but not older adults (Zanto et al. 2011). However, in this previous study, temporal expectation was always accompanied by spatial predictions.  We are therefore currently investigating the effect of temporal and spatial predictions – combined and independent - in younger adults, and whether this is this disrupted in older adults.
