The DRT reaction time for single-task and IVIS-1 conditions after 5 days of practice. The data are plotted for younger, middle, and older age groups. Error bars reflect the 95 % confidence interval around the point estimate. This figure illustrates the classic age–complexity pattern, where age-related differences grow with task complexity. Moreover, it is clear that substantial costs are associated with the IVIS interactions after 5 days of practice. Hence, older adults exhibit greater costs with the IVIS interactions and practice does not eliminate the costs (for any age group)
