Older Adults, Compared To Younger Adults, Prefer To View World Through Positive Filter (KJZZ-FM)

KJZZ-FM featured research from lead author Briana Kennedy of the USC Leonard Davis School and colleagues on how older adults view their world through a positive filter, compared to younger adults. “We found older adults were biased toward positive information, but tended to filter out the negative and on the other hand, the younger adults were distracted by positive and negative information,” she said.
