Neurologic disorders of aging
Some neurologic disorders are more common in the elderly, and their prevalence is increasing with higher life expectancies. Although changes in the brain that are associated with aging cannot be prevented, the onset of the impairment of function can be delayed, and neuropsychological performance can be improved by certain measures, including mental and physical exercises. Neurorehabilitation is important in the management of neurologic disorders of the elderly, with an emphasis on gait training.
