  • Evaluating Distinctions in the Assessment of Late-Life Disability. [Multicenter Study]
  • JGJ Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 2017 Oct 12; 72(11):1538-1546
  • Gill TM, Williams CS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite inconsistencies in its hierarchy, the 5-category scale is more effective in stratifying risk for mortality and functional dependence than the two 3-category scales but not the 4-category scale. When assessing changes over time, however, the addition of questions on accommodations and reduced frequency to those on difficulty and dependence, to form a summative disability score, offers little benefit and increases the burden of the assessment.
  • Aging, the Central Nervous System, and Mobility in Older Adults: Interventions. [Journal Article]
  • JGJ Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 2016; 71(11):1451-1458
  • Varma VR, Hausdorff JM, … Carlson MC
  • CONCLUSIONS: In order to develop effective preventive interventions for this prevalent syndrome, multidisciplinary teams are essential particularly because of the complex nature of the syndrome. Additionally, integrating innovative methods into the design of interventions may help researchers better measure complex mechanisms, and finally, the value of understanding the link between the CNS and mobility should be conveyed to researchers across disciplines in order to incorporate cognitive and mobility measurements into study protocols.
  • Aging, the Central Nervous System, and Mobility in Older Adults: Neural Mechanisms of Mobility Impairment. [Congresses]
  • JGJ Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 2015; 70(12):1526-32
  • Sorond FA, Cruz-Almeida Y, … Lipsitz LA
  • CONCLUSIONS: CNS is a major player in the process, leading to mobility decline with aging. Future research in this area has the potential to prolong independence in older persons. Better interactions among disciplines and shared research paradigms are needed to make progress. Research priorities include the development of innovative approaches to integrate research on aging, cognition, and movement with attention to neurovascular function, neuroplasticity, and neurophysiological reserve.
