About Our Lab

The Gait and Brain Lab is a research facility at Parkwood Institute, London, Ontario. We specialize in ageing-related research, specifically looking at the interaction between one’s mobility and cognition as one ages. The Gait and Brain Lab’s mission is to integrate “Mobility and Cognition” as a new line of research to better understand and treat the epidemic of insidious disability in older people.
