Approximately 30% of the elderly population is falling each year, resulting in a major health problem. Cognitive decline is an independent risk factor for fall. Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a cognitive decline that is higher than expected in the subjects' age but does not affect the activities of daily living
In the study, vestibulo-ocular reflexes, dynamic visual acuities and postural balances of subjects with mild cognitive impairment were evaluated and compared with the healthy control group.

Several studies have investigated motor and cognitive skills in infants as well as gross motor abilities in schoolchildren treated for congenital idiopathic clubfoot, mostly indicating specific impair...
Dual-task (simultaneous motor and cognitive task) (DT) training via virtual-reality exergaming is known to benefit balance control post-stroke. However, the efficacy of such training on DT balance con...
Patients with schizophrenia show cognitive impairments that have been linked to poor social functioning. Computerized cognitive remediation therapy has shown to be effective in improving both cognitio...
Subtle cognitive deficits are present in almost half of the patients with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) suggestive of multiple sclerosis (MS). Similarly, subtle balance deficits can be detected a...
The definition of benign multiple sclerosis (BMS) is still debated. It is mainly based on physical status, however, there is an attempt to involve cognitive functioning or paraclinical factors in orde...
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is often characterized by the presence of balance and cognitive impairments. Cognitive functions play a key role in balance control. Simultaneously performing cogni...
Post-stroke, people suffer various sensorimotor and cognitive deficits that lead to impaired balance control and gait functions thereby increasing the risk of falls. Despite undergoing exe...
Introduction: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is characterized by decreased strength and motor control, and compromised gait function. Reduced walking speed, balance and fatigue are the cardinal s...
The purpose of this study is to restore life role participation for those with TBI by customizing, applying, and testing integrated cognitive and motor training protocols that were success...
The composite effect of reduced balance, cognition, gait abnormalities/gait disturbances, and physical activity in older adults with mild cognitive impairments (MCI) leads to fear of falli...
A performance test based on forced MOTOR ACTIVITY on a rotating rod, usually by a rodent. Parameters include the riding time (seconds) or endurance. Test is used to evaluate balance and coordination of the subjects, particular in experimental animal models for neurological disorders and drug effects.
The coordination of a sensory or ideational (cognitive) process and a motor activity.
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
The recorded electrical responses from nerve, muscle, SENSORY RECEPTOR, or area of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM following stimulation. They range from less than a microvolt to several microvolts. The evoked potential can be auditory (EVOKED POTENTIALS, AUDITORY), somatosensory (EVOKED POTENTIALS, SOMATOSENSORY), visual (EVOKED POTENTIALS, VISUAL), or motor (EVOKED POTENTIALS, MOTOR), or other modalities that have been reported. Often used synonymously to event-related potentials which are associated with higher level cognitive processes.
A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.
