Special issue on the Effects of aging on locomotor patterns
This special issue aims to organize scientific evidence on how healthy aging and age-related diseases affect locomotion in different contexts. Locomotion here is supposed to cover mobility performance, walking capacity, and different measures of gait (e.g., gait stability, variability, kinematics, muscle activation, synergies, and cortical activation). We also encourage studies verifying task paradigms, multidimensional correlational gait studies, interventions focusing on gait rehabilitation and falls, and discussions of different levels of gait analysis in aging and age-related diseases.
