    Lindsay S Nagamatsu
    Department of Psychology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver BC, Canada
    Behav Brain Funct 7:37. 2011
    ..If these are related, it would suggest that the development of interventions targeted at improving executive neurocognitive function would be an effective new approach for reducing physiological falls risk in seniors...

    Age Ageing 41:495-501. 2012

    Lindsay S Nagamatsu
    Department of Psychology, University of British Columbia
