BACKGROUND Recent evidence of obesity-related changes in the prefrontal cortex during cognitive and seated motor activities has surfaced; however, the impact of obesity on neural activity during ambulation remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to determine obesity-specific neural cost of simple and complex ambulation in older adults. METHODS Twenty non-obese and obese individuals, 65years and older, performed three tasks varying in the types of complexity of ambulation (simple… CONTINUE READING
