Abstract

Research on ageing is being conducted across multiple disciplines. It is important to keep abreast of the wider ageing research, with a view to how findings in other disciplines can impact upon human computer interaction (HCI). Research in psychology on age-related memory losses, in psycho-social areas on biological losses that arise with increasing age, and in biomedicine Alzheimer?s related animal experiments, all has potential to impact interface design. HCI researchers need to remain cognisant of advances in other fields. This review examines the possible design implications that arise from such research, and consequently suggests further avenues for HCI research.
