Slow walking speed linked to Alzheimer’s disease

A study of walking speed and its possible relationship to Alzheimer’s disease was reported in the Canberra Times on 5 December.

The CT story was an excerpt from a UK London Telegraph article posted 2 December.

An abstract of the original research study Relationship of regional brain β-amyloid to gait speed is available from the journal Neurology, the official journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
