Lab Visit: Testing Gait and Brain Function (excerpt)
In a visit to the lab of Joe Verghese, M.B.B.S., M.S., we see how researchers monitor a study participant's gait patterns on an electronic mat and simultaneously capture brain activity – and how that pattern changes as she recites alternate letters of the alphabet. Dr. Verghese is chief of geriatrics at Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center and a professor of neurology and of medicine at Einstein. This edition of Einstein On, a research and medicine podcast, is hosted by Paul Moniz, managing director of communications and marketing at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Watch full interview
