  1. May I ask some questions?

    Dear, Sheyda.

    I am Daisuke Ueno from Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Japan.
    I am interested in cognitive aging and emotion.

    I have 2 questions.
    1) How about the results of PANAS? Is there any age-related differences?

    2) It is interested about the hypothesis in this study “because older adults have chronic stress, they have vulnerability for decreasing executive function”.
    Did you measure the chronic stress response before the cognitive task? Could PANAS be interpreted as stress response?

    I hope my review will inspire your study.
    Best regards,
    Daisuke
