Metamemory in healthy aging

A critical issue in today’s ageing society is how to better understand and mitigate for cognitive changes. The central topic of this proposed research is metamemory: the ability to reflect upon and monitor our memory. Understanding metamemory would help us understand the concept of ‘cognitive reserve’: protective factors in the maintenance of cognitive function in older adults. First we need to know which forms of metamemory are altered in ageing. We will discover the status of metacognitive accuracy in several tasks using hierarchical Bayesian modelling. We will compare the impact of age and examine the relationship between metamemory with well-being, emotion, quality of life and cognitive reserve. We will establish a national model ‘Seniors for Science’ in collaboration with the Maison de Science de l’Homme – enabling senior French citizens to contribute to research programmes and learn about their memory function. We will rise to meet the challenges of open, reproducible science.
