Association Among Neurophysiology, Cognition And Mobility In Older Adults

Abstract
Age-related structural and molecular changes in older adults have been shown to significantly affect their cognitive and motor functions (Trollor and Valenzuela, 2001). Given the growing population of older adults, it is imperative to bridge the gaps in scientific understanding of cognition and motor capabilities in healthy older adults’ population. This study investigates five major neurochemicals and their potential correlations with gait, balance, executive function, and attention in healthy older adults. Additionally, we explore the interplay between cognition and motor performance in our participants. Furthermore, we hypothesize that the neurochemical values of interest may serve as predictive indicators for motor performance and cognition in healthy older adults.
