Abstract


The present study is about to assess the ability to inhibit cognitive interference ( stroop colour and word test)that occurs when the processing of a stimulus feature affects the simultaneous processing of another attribute of the same stimulus (Stroop,1935) between elderly people (65 years and above age) and adolescent people (13-18 years). The main objectives of the present study is , “ to find out thedescriptive statistics of number of responses (NOR),incorrect responses (IR) and time responses (TR) in second between elderly people and adolescence; to compare the significance difference of elderly people and adolescence on the stroop colour and wordtest (SCWT) i.e., number of responses (NOR); incorrect responses (IR) and time responses (TR)in second; to compare the mean bar diagram of number ofresponses (NOR); incorrectresponses (IR) and time responses (TR in second) between elderly people and adolescence people.Trying to fulfill these objectives, the investigators randomly selected fortysix participants from the normal Mizo population of elderly people (fifteen sample) and adolescence (thirtyone sample). Results are evaluated by means of mean, standard deviation,one way analysis and mean bar diagram of both participants on stroop colour and word test (SCWT) to assess the ability to inhibit cognitive interference. The results have indicated that measures of number of responses (NOR in colour and word test), Incorrect responses (TRin second on colour and word test) on elderly people and adolescence people are found to be statistically significant. From the bar diagram, elderly people has found more mean values on numberof responses,incorrect responses and time responses (in second) on colour and word test than adolescence.
Keywords: elderly people,adolescence, colour word, number of responses, Incorrect responses.
