Age Level And Magnitude of Age Related Intellectual Decline

Cross-sectional studies with the WAIS suggest that significant age differences favoring young adults can be found by the 30s for performance tests and by the 60s for verbal tests. These differences, however, confound cohort effects in education and health status. By contrast, in longitudinal studies, reliably replicable average age decrements in intellectual abilities are rarely found before age 60, but they are observed for all intellectual functions at least by age 74. Analyses of individual differences in intellectual change, however, demonstrate that even at age 81 less than half of all observed individuals showed reliable decremental change over the preceding 7 years.
