Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Relational thinking in later adulthood.

The research addressed the role of relational processing capacity in cognitive aging focusing on (a) age-differences in complex relational processing, (b) the domain-generality of complex relational processing, and (c) associations of complex relational processing with other processes. Participants were 125 adults in three groups with mean ages of 30.55 (younger), 53.43 (middle), and 74.41 years (older). Each relational processing task (sentence comprehension, n-term premise integration, Latin square) included items at three complexity levels. Accuracy was lower on more complex items and relational complexity had a greater effect in the older group. Confirmatory factor analyses confirmed a single complex relational processing factor, consistent with a domain-general capacity. Relational processing was related to other executive processes. This relationship was stronger in the older than younger and middle groups, possibly reflecting dedifferentiation or neural noise. In structural models with planning (Tower of London) and class reasoning as outcome variables, complex relational processing had a significant impact (β = .455, pp p

Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: The impact of memory-strategy training interventions on participant-reported outcomes in healthy older adults: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

A number of memory-strategy training interventions have been developed to target and reduce the impact of normal age-related memory decline. Most outcome studies to date have used objective memory measures to evaluate the efficacy of such interventions…

Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Impact of combat exposure on mental health trajectories in later life: Longitudinal findings from the VA Normative Aging Study.

Cross-sectional studies have shown contradictory results concerning the impact of combat exposure on mental health in later life. We examined whether combat exposure influences trajectories of mental health symptoms in older male veterans using longitu…
