It was found that correlation between response latencies for each stimulus on “go” trials and number of errors was small and not reliable, excluding correlation for the target identity in the older group. The elderly showed significant positive correlation between RT and errors for the stimulus containing target identity. Given that a difference in RT between the identity and emotion targets was not significant and the positive character of the correlation did not imply for speed-accuracy tradeoff, the accuracy performance could be ignored in redundancy gain analyses for the older group.
