In this project, we are part of a large Canada-wide team of researchers interested in how combined exercise and cognitive training can help improve cognitive status and mobility in older adults at risk for dementia (i.e., those with Mild Cognitive Impairment). This clinical trial is part of a larger research network, the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA). The overall aim of CCNA is to develop a Canadian strategy to tackle prevention, treatment and care for Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias, and includes studies of cellular, genetic, neuroimaging, nutritional, behavioural, lifestyle and cultural factors. Our lab is involved in the implementation and delivery of the training protocol, and we will examine the mobility-related outcomes (walking, dual-task walking, balance).
