They also draw upon our approximate sense of complexity. A detrimental effect of aging on pseudo-random productions has been demon-strated for some tasks, but little is as yet known about the developmental curve of cognitive complexity over the lifespan. We investigate the complexity trajectory across the lifespan of human responses to five common RIG tasks, using a large sample (n = 3429). Our main finding is that the developmental curve of the estimated algorithmic complexity of responses is similar to what may be expected of a measure of higher cognitive abilities, with a perfor-mance peak around 25 and a decline starting around 60, suggesting that RIG tasks yield good estimates of such cognitive abilities. Our study illustrates that very short strings of, i.e., 10 items, are sufficient to have their complexity reliably estimated and to allow the documen-tation of an age-dependent decline in the approximate sense of complexity.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/human-behavioral-complexity-peaks-age-25", "reader_count"=>56, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Professor > Associate Professor"=>3, "Student > Doctoral Student"=>2, "Researcher"=>11, "Student > Ph.
