We analysed the three-way interaction by a 3 (task: spatial, non-spatial and control) X 4 (sensory condition: EOFF, ECFF, EOFS and ECFS) repeated-measures ANOVA separately conducted for the young and older adults.
We then analysed the data using a 2 (age: young and old) X 2 (task: spatial and non-spatial) X 4 (sensory condition: EOFF, ECFF, EOFS, and ECFS) mixed-design ANOVA.
