Framing effect is an irrational deviation in decision-making, and the age differences of it has been gradually concerned by the academics. In general, the older and younger adults differ in framing effect when facing the medical and economic decision-making, mainly in susceptibility and type. The framing effect in elderly adults is mainly influenced by decision making context, cognition, emotion and neurophysiologic features. In addition to further explore the characteristics of framing effect across different domains and its influencing factors, future researchers need to extend the study from the views of other individual characteristics of the elderly adults, the experimental material and design type, the psychological mechanism and applied values.
