Riattivare la memoria nell'invecchiamento: l'intervento strategico-metacognitivo A metacognitive strategy training was developed for old adults to improve their cognitive performance. 133 old adults participated at 9 training sessions. Results showed the efficacy of this type of intervention in improving cognitive performance and metacognitive attitudes in older adults. Moreover, a significant increase from post-test performance to a follow-up, conducted after six months, was found in memory performance. Taken together these findings highlight the importance of a training program that integrates teaching the use of mnemonic strategies with metacognitive principles to improve old adults’ memory ability.
