Brain scan test predicts fall risk in elderly
from HealthDay via
Falls can prove very disabling for the elderly, and new research suggests that measurements of healthy older adults' brain activity may help determine their future risk. "Our findings suggest that changes in brain activity that influence walking may be present long before people exhibit any sign of walking difficulty," said study lead author Dr. Joe Verghese. He directs the Montefiore Einstein Center for the Aging Brain in New York City.
