Eric James, Ph.D., Mobility Research
Dr. James' research focuses on helping older adults age more gracefully. He studies how older adults use their brain to move their body, to find ways to help them stay mobile and healthy throughout their lives.
He is currently conducting a study funded by the National Institute on Aging in which older adults receive training to improve their coordination. The objective of this research is to improve older adults’ ability to walk and balance properly. He is also examining how coordination training affects brain function, with the objective of improving brain health and improving quality of life.
