In older adults, the peripheral vision field, known as the useful field of view (UFOV), reduces in size. This study showed that UFOV field size can be partially recovered by training on Posit Science programs. Older individuals who use Posit Science training improve UFOV perfmorance to levels closer to those of younger people.
