BACKGROUND Falls are frequent in Parkinson's disease and ageing. Impairments in the cholinergic-mediated attentional supervision of gait may contribute to increased fall risk, especially when obstacles challenge gait. Interventions combining motor-cognitive approaches have been shown to improve motor performance, cognitive skills and falls number. Here, we hypothesized that an intervention simulating an attention-demanding walking condition could impact not only complex gait performance and… CONTINUE READING
