Jayakody O, Breslin M, Srikanth V, Callisaya M. Gait Characteristics and Cognitive Decline: A Longitudinal Population-Based Study Journal Alzheimers Disease 2019 Apr 1. doi: 10.3233/JAD-181157. 



Gait impairments are emerging predictors of dementia. However, few studies have examined whether gait predicts decline in specific cognitive domains.


This study aimed to determine whether gait speed or other gait characteristics were associated with decline in specific cognitive domains and the role of the ApoE4 genotype in modifying these associations.
