Résumé

With respect to ongoing debates in gerontological neuropsychology concerning whether activity predicts cognitive functioning over time, present cross-lagged investigations over 6 years suggest that late-life leisure activity participation may predict later cognitive status in terms of Trail Making Test performance but, notably, only in certain individuals such as young-old adults, individuals who had less cognitively demanding jobs in midlife, and those with high vocabulary (as a proxy of crystallized intelligence).
