Three different measures of cognitive age were administered to a sample of 355 older adults. Cognitive age was found to be a potentially valuable concept for advertising targeting, creative decisions and media selection, when used in conjunction with chronological age. Among the three different measures of cognitive age, the age-decade scale proved to be the best because, compared with the other two measures, it is easy to administer, analyze and interpret.
