Une approche en termes de frontières d’effi cacité peut être utilisée pour étudier les relations entre les fonctions cognitives des personnes âgées de plus de 50 ans en Europe d’une part, et différents facteurs, plus particulièrement l’âge, l’éducation et l’exercice d’activités, professionnelles ou non, d’autre part. Le but est de construire une « frontière » correspondant au fonctionnement cognitif optimal que chacun des individus est censé atteindre étant donné son âge et son niveau d’éducation. À cette fi n, nous utilisons des données individuelles collectées durant la première vague de l’enquête internationale et interdisciplinaire Share de 2004, laquelle contient le résultat de tests cognitifs réalisés auprès de plus de 22 000 individus âgés, ainsi que des informations sur leur état de santé, mentale et physique, leur situation socio-économique, leur entourage familial, l’exercice d’activités professionnelles ou non professionnelles, l’isolement social et les performances cognitives individuelles mesurées à l’aide de tests. En plus du rôle fondamental joué par l’éducation face au vieillissement cognitif, le fait de rester en activité, ainsi que la pratique d’une activité non professionnelle ou d’activités physiques, vigoureuses ou modérées, sont positivement associés à la constitution des « réserves cognitives » individuelles. La mise à disposition des données des vagues successives de Share , prévues tous les deux ans auprès des mêmes individus, pourrait permettre de déterminer les liens de causalité subjacents. [less ▲]

This paper proposes the use of the stochastic frontier approach to analyse the relationship between cognitive performance, retirement and non-professional activities of the 50+ individuals using data from three surveys conducted in Europe (the Survey on Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe and the English Longitudinal Survey on Ageing) and United States (the Health and Retirement Study). Next to the strong relationship between cognitive performance, age and education, this study highlights the negative effect of retirement and the positive impact of non-professional activities and social contacts.

Little is known about the possible link between the cognitive disorders associated with hypothyroidism and those encountered in depression. This study examines attentional and executive functions as well as the intensity of anxiety and depressive symptoms in hypothyroidism and major depression and the possible link between these symptoms and cognitive disturbances. This study confirms the existence of psychomotor slowing associated with attentional and executive disturbance in major depression as well as in hypothyroidism. However, while depressed subjects manifested a conscious bias with material of negative emotional valence, no such bias was found in the hypothyroid subjects. While the hypothyroid state is accompanied by anxiety/depressive symptoms, it seems that the latter are too discrete for an attentional bias to be observed with material with a negative emotional valence.

The aim of this paper was to use a parametric stochastic frontier approach (coming from the economic literature) to explore the impact of the concept of activity (taken in a broad sense: i.e., including both professional and non-professional activities) on the constitution and the care of cognitive reserve among the European population aged 50 and up. For this purpose, we use individual data collected during the first wave of SHARE (Survey on Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe) performed in 2004. The advantages of this survey were (1) it included a large population (n = 18,623) geographically distributed throughout Europe; and (2) it simultaneously analyzed several dimensions (physical and mental health, mobility, occupational activities, socioeconomic status, etc.). Our results confirm the positive impact of occupational activities on the cognitive functioning of elderly people. These results are discussed in terms of the prevention of cognitive aging and Alzheimer’s disease, and more particularly of retirement policy issues. [less ▲]
