However, contextual features in the testing environment may be perceived as stressful by older adults, increasing their stress hormone levels. Given the evidence that older adults are highly sensitive to the effects of stress hormones (cortisol) on memory performance, it is postulated that a stressful testing environment in older adults can lead to an acute stress response and to memory impairments.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Juster, Robert-Paul</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:creator>Pruessner, Jens</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Fiocco, Alexandra J.</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-04-05T09:45:46Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Sindi, Shireen</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Lupien, Sonia J.</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Sindi, Shireen</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2013-08</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Juster, Robert-Paul</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>When we test, do we stress? : Impact of the testing environment on cortisol secretion and memory performance in older adults</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-04-05T09:45:46Z</dcterms:available> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/38345"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Pruessner, Jens</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Fiocco, Alexandra J.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
