Abstract

Prior research has shown that perceived control plays an important role in shaping cognitive functioning in late life. However, much less is known about racial/ethnic variations in the link between perceived control and cognitive functioning among older men and women. Here, we address this gap in the literature by examining how perceived control interacts with race/ethnicity and gender to shape cognition among older adults.
