We propose a three-level theory-driven approach integrating Clinical Neuropsychology, Cognitive Neurosciences, and Genetics to explore mechanisms of gait and falls in non- demented subjects age 70 and older residing in the community. Our long-term goal is to identify specific cognitive and genetic mechanisms pertinent to developing more efficient risk assessment and intervention programs of decline in gait and falls in older adults.
