Clinical Science Brown Bag: Stress, Depressive Symptoms, and Cognition in Older Adults

Afsara Zaheed, Clinical Science Doctoral Candidate

Zaheed Zaheed
Chronic stress is a risk factor for negative health outcomes in late life, including cognitive impairment. The negative association between stress and cognition may be mediated by depressive symptoms, which separate studies have identified as both a consequence of chronic stress and a risk factor for cognitive decline. Pathways linking stress, depressive symptoms, and cognition may also be influenced by sociodemographic characteristics (i.e., gender, race & ethnicity) or modifiable psychosocial resources (i.e., social support, perceived control). Using data from the Washington Heights-Inwood Columbia Aging Project, the goal of this cross-sectional study was to enhance understanding of the mechanisms and modifiability of the stress-cognition link in a racially and ethnically diverse sample of older adults.
