Identifying familiarity in older and younger adults
Lawry, Simon, Popovic, Vesna, & Blackler, Alethea L. (2010) Identifying familiarity in older and younger adults. In Proceedings of Design Research Society International Conference 2010 : Design & Complexity, School of Industrial Design, Université de Montréal, Montréal.
This paper discusses research into familiarity amongst younger and older adults. It explains the relevance of familiarity in product interactions. An experiment is discussed which investigates differences in familiarity between younger and older adults. A comprehensive coding scheme was developed to help analyse the data collected. This paper discusses the results and findings from the observational data. The results indicate that there is a negative relationship between age and familiarity. Also older adults are less likely to demonstrate familiarity though verbalisation than their younger counterparts.
