Congratulations Briana! (September 2017)
Briana Sprague's TVEM paper has been accepted! This paper examined cross-sectional relationships between physical and cognitive function in older adults using a novel statistical technique called time-varying effects modeling (TVEM). Briana and her colleagues found that simple physical function was a stronger predictor of processing speed, memory, and reasoning for the oldest-old, and complex physical function generally was a stronger predictor for the young-old and oldest old. This demonstrates that age plays a critical role in how relationships between physical and cognitive function couple across the older adulthood continuum.
