      There is growing evidence that older adults with sensory impairments are at higher risk for developing cognitive impairment/dementia. It is unclear if the link between sensory and cognitive functioning reflects a common underlying cause or whether sensory deficits directly undermine cognitive processing. Here, we addressed this issue by comparing behavioral and event-related potential responses of young and old adults during a working memory paradigm that parametrically varied visual contrast levels and task demands.
