Mobility requires efficient interaction of musculo-skeletal and sensory systems (especially visual, somatosensory, and vestibular) to control everyday movements,  and these systems are known to be compromised in aging and linked to cognitive status.


Participants complete a simple reaction time (RT) test employing three bilaterally presented conditions (visual, somatosensory, and visual-somatosensory) and one control (i.e., ‘catch’) condition where no stimulation is presented and no response is expected.



Our research interests include: healthy aging, sensory functioning [multisensory integration], motor functioning [gait; balance & motor control]; cognitive functioning [attention & executive functioning]; and age-related diseases [including but not limited to mild Parkinsonian symptoms; mild cognitive impairment Alzheimer’s disease & diabetes].
