Happy people less likely to experience memory decline: Study – National Herald

For the findings, the research team analysed data from 991 middle-aged and older US adults who participated in a national study conducted at three time periods — between 1995 and 1996, 2004 and 2006, and 2013 and 2014.

In each assessment, participants reported on a range of positive emotions they had experienced during the past 30 days.

In the final two assessments, participants also completed tests of memory performance. These tests consisted of recalling words immediately after their presentation and again 15 minutes later.
