Résumé

Le sentiment d’auto-efficacité mnésique (SAM) chez les personnes âgées est lié au déclin de la mémoire et à la santé mentale. Cependant, la relation entre le SAM et les croyances des personnes âgées concernant l’oubli et le vieillissement est rarement évaluée. Dans la présente étude, nous avons fait l’hypothèse que les croyances concernant l’oubli et le vieillissement prédiraient le SAM des personnes âgées, indépendamment des performances de mémoire réelles et de la santé mentale. Nous avons analysé les données d’un échantillon de 298 participants âgés entre 57 et 87 ans, en utilisant trois indicateurs de SAM (y compris un indicateur de changement temporel perçu de la mémoire), une mesure des croyances concernant l’oubli et le vieillissement, et des mesures de performances de mémoire, de dépression, d’anxiété trait, et de santé subjective. Les résultats confirment notre hypothèse, soulignant ainsi la nécessité de considérer l’adhésion aux croyances concernant l’oubli et le vieillissement lorsque l’on examine les variations de SAM chez les personnes âgées., Memory Self-Efficacy (MSE) in older adults is linked to memory decline and mental health. However, the relation between MSE and older adults’ beliefs about forgetting and aging is rarely evaluated. In the present study, we hypothesized that beliefs about forgetting and aging predict MSE for older adults, regardless of actual memory performance and mental health. We analyzed data from a community sample of 298 participants aged between 57 and 87 years, using three indicators of MSE (including one of perceived temporal change in memory), a measure of beliefs about forgetting and aging, and measures of memory performance, depression, trait-anxiety, and subjective health. The results support our hypothesis, thereby highlighting the need to consider adherence to beliefs about forgetting and aging when investigating variations in MSE in older adults.

Résumé

We investigated whether the relation of educational attainment and cognitive level of job to performance in verbal ability and processing speed in old age was mediated via the number of chronic diseases. A total of 2,812 older adults participated. Psychometric tests on verbal ability and processing speed were administered. Individuals were interviewed regarding their education, midlife occupation, and chronic diseases in old age. Higher educational attainment and higher cognitive level of job were correlated with better performance in verbal ability and processing speed (.15 ≤ r ≤ .33, ps {\textless} .001). 1.4 to 7.3% of these relations was mediated via the number of chronic diseases (β = .01, ps {\textless} .026). In conclusion, individuals with higher educational attainment and higher cognitive level of job may possibly suffer from fewer chronic diseases later in life. Possibly, this may finally be related to better performance in verbal ability and processing speed in those individuals in old age.

Résumé

The current study examined the impact of length and difficulty of the delay task on young adult’s event-based prospective memory (PM). Participants engaged in either a short (2.5 min) or a long (15 min) delay that was filled with either a simple item categorization task or a difficult cognitive task. They also completed a questionnaire on whether they thought about the PM intention during the delay period and how often they thought about it. Results revealed that participants’ PM was better after a difficult delay task compared to an easy delay task. Participants thought about the PM intention more often during the difficult delay task than during the easy delay task. PM performance was positively related to participants’ reports of how many times they thought about their intentions. The important role of delay task difficulty in allowing or preventing individuals from refreshing their future intentions is discussed.
