TLDR
This work assessed the differential cognitive, affective, and neuroimaging correlates of two aspects of SCD: reporting high cognitive difficulties on a self‐rated questionnaire versus consulting at a memory clinic. Expand

TLDR
Whether subjective memory complaints, measured with a series of four questions, are associated with performance on cognitive tests is examined. Expand

Researchers study the relationship between subjective memory complaints, cognitive functioning, and clinical diagnosis of dementia in patients with a history of dementia. Expand
Longitudinal stability of subsyndromal symptoms of depression in individuals with mild cognitive impairment: relationship to conversion to dementia after 3 years
TLDR
To evaluate the degree to which longitudinal stability of subsyndromal symptoms of depression (SSD) is associated with conversion to dementia in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), data are analyzed through positron emission tomography and EMT. Expand
Subjective memory decline in healthy community‐dwelling elders. What does this complain mean?
TLDR
Subjective memory decline in healthy community‐dwelling elders is found to be more widespread in older people than in children under the age of 18. Expand
Cognitive and Demographic Determinants of Dementia in Depressed Patients with Subjective Memory Complaints
TLDR
Impairment of the executive component of working memory as well as limited access to visual knowledge may predict cognitive deterioration in depressed patients with subjective memory complaints. Expand
Patterns of subjective memory impairment in the elderly: association with memory performance
TLDR
In SMI subjects with only a minor number of depressive symptoms, memory complaints are associated with delayed recall, suggesting that SMI may be the first manifestation of future dementia in elderly subjects without depression. Expand

TLDR

Memory Complaints in Mild Cognitive Impairment, Worried Well, and Semantic Dementia Patients
TLDR
Investigating the profile of subjective memory complaints in different cognitive syndromes found memory complaints are strikingly similar to the description of typical core deficits in SD patients, suggesting the sole reliance on memory complaints for insight into memory functioning and diagnosing aMCI is problematic. Expand
Change in depressive symptoms during the prodromal phase of Alzheimer disease.
TLDR
No evidence of an increase in depressive symptoms during the prodromal phase of Alzheimer disease is found, although symptoms tended to decrease in women relative to men and in those with a higher premorbid level of openness and a lower premorbed level of agreeableness. Expand
The occurrence of depressive symptoms in the preclinical phase of AD
TLDR
Depressive symptoms are elevated preclinically in AD, and this elevation is not merely a by-product of self-perceived cognitive difficulties, thus, depressive symptoms may be part of the preclinical phase in AD. Expand
