The evaluation of one’s own action errors has been shown to be dependent on an individual’s appreciation thereof. Individual differences in the neural processing of errors can be linked to personality profiles related to the perception of errors, such as perfectionism.
It is very likely, however, that an individual's mindsets and perfectionism profiles change during the lifespan. This project will employ cognitive tasks in which participants commit errors or have the opportunity to change their minds and systematically compare personality and performance profiles between elderly and younger participants.
Data analysis will comprise response time modelling, the analysis of response force profiles, and electroencephalography (EEG) to predict decisions and error correction processes directly from brain activity.
