Improving Gait Speed through Cognitive Remediation (excerpt)


Can cognitive remediation programs improve gait speed in frail and elderly adults? According to a small study led by researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, the answer is yes.

 

Because attention and executive functions are vital determinants of mobility, the researchers set out to discover if improving brain function would improve walking ability. Leading the study was Joe Verghese, MD, professor of neurology, Murray D. Gross Memorial Faculty Scholar in Gerontology, and director of the Division of Cognitive and Motor Aging at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in the Bronx, New York.  Active Aging Today Managing Editor Kristi Turnbaugh interviewed Verghese about this research.
