In this study, age differences in depressive symptom experiences were investigated in 368 women between the ages of 51-65 & 65-92. The authors found 2 somewhat different depressive syndromes contributing to symptom reports, one showing higher levels in the younger cohort, the other higher levels in the older cohort. Three delimited forms of distress – feelings of enervation, dysphoria, & sleep disturbance – were higher in the older cohort.
