Balance as a predictor of cognitive decline

23 Mar

The journal Stroke has published a paper titled: “Association of Postural Instability With Asymptomatic Cerebrovascular Damage and Cognitive Decline: The Japan Shimanami Health Promoting Program Study.”

The paper’s main conclusion:

“Postural instability was found to be associated with early pathological changes in the brain and functional decline, even in apparently healthy subjects.”

You can read the whole abstract here. And here is a popular account published by the AARP.
