Quantitative gait dysfunction and risk of cognitive decline and dementia
Background: Identifying quantitative gait markers of preclinical dementia may lead to new insights into early disease stages, improve diagnostic assessments and identify new preventive strategies.Expand

Quantitative gait markers and incident fall risk in older adults.
BACKGROUND Identifying quantitative gait markers of falls in older adults may improve diagnostic assessments and suggest novel intervention targets. METHODS We studied 597 adults aged 70 and olderExpand

fNIRS study of walking and walking while talking in young and old individuals.
BACKGROUND Evidence suggests that gait is influenced by higher order cognitive and cortical control mechanisms. However, less is known about the functional correlates of cortical control of gait. Expand

Motoric cognitive risk syndrome and the risk of dementia.
BACKGROUND Despite growing evidence of links between gait and cognition in aging, cognitive risk assessments that incorporate motoric signs have not been examined. We sought to validate a new MotoricExpand

The relationship between specific cognitive functions and falls in aging.
The current study examined the relationship between cognitive function and falls in older people who did not meet criteria for dementia or mild cognitive impairment (N = 172). To address limitationsExpand

Effect of cognitive remediation on gait in sedentary seniors.
BACKGROUND Attention and executive functions show strong associations with slow gait and falls in seniors and have been shown to be amenable to cognitive remediation. However, cognitive remediationExpand

Within-person across-neuropsychological test variability and incident dementia.
CONTEXT Neuropsychological tests are used to predict and diagnose dementia. However, to our knowledge, no studies to date have examined whether within-person across-neuropsychological testExpand

A common neural network for cognitive reserve in verbal and object working memory in young but not old.
Epidemiologic evidence suggests that cognitive reserve (CR) mitigates the effects of aging on cognitive function. The goal of this study was to see whether a common neural mechanism for CR could beExpand
