Background In future, as the population ages, the number of people in our communities suffering with dementia will rise dramatically. This will not only affect the quality of life of people with dementia but also increase the burden on family caregivers, community care, and residential care...
This is an update of our previous 2008 review. Several recent trials and systematic reviews of the impact of exercise on people with dementia are reporting promising findings. Objectives Primary: Do exercise programs for older people with dementia improve cognition, activities of daily living...
Gait and Cognition: Exploring Cognition and Dual-task Costs in a Group of Community Dwelling Alzheimer’s Disease Patients over 6 MonthsDownload
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder resulting in cognitive decline affecting many activities of daily living including gait. Many tools exist to monitor AD progression, including cognitive examinations, and functional tests of mobility. The purpose of the present study is...

Integrating Characteristics of Executive Functions in Non-Demented Aging: Structure, Trajectories, Classification, and Biomarker PredictorsDownload
In aging, executive function (EF) performance (level) and change (trajectory) are linked to multiple interacting risk factors. Structurally, EFs have previously been represented as either a unitary (e.g., unidimensional) or diverse (e.g., multidimensional) set of abilities that change across the...
