BMC Geriatrics Mar 10, 2020
Mogle J, Hill NL, Bhargava S, et al. - Researchers analyzed data from cognitively intact older adults aged ≥ 65 years to assess concurrent and temporal links between memory complaints and depressive symptoms in older adults. Data were extracted from two longitudinal, nationally representative datasets from the National Health and Aging Trends Study and the Health and Retirement Study. In both datasets, researchers found that perceived memory decline was predictive future depressive symptoms, but memory ratings were not predictive. Overall, cognitively intact older adults who report memory decline may be at risk for depressive symptoms in the future.
