McIntosh IB, Grant J, Wilkinson H & Swanson V (2002) A pilot community study of subjective memory in over and under 65 years old [Estudio piloto comunitario. Las preocupaciones por la memoria subjetiva en personas mayores y menores de 65 años.]. Vertex (Buenos Aires, Argentina), 13 (49), pp. 177-181.
Elderly adults are appropriate targets for objective memory assessment and cognitive testing in the promotion of earlier recognition of people with symptoms of a dementing process. The major change in memory with age is the decline in ability to recall things explicitly. There is a need for education of the general public and health professionals about memory impairment and its relationship with stress, depression, anxiety and dementia.
