- Fall Risk [ Time Frame: Through study completion, on average 1 year ]
The following equation for the prediction of falls will be used:
Likelihood of falling (%) = (exp (-7.519 + 0.026(reaction time) - 0.071(ABC1) - 2.139(Berg 14))) / (1 + exp (-7.519 + 0.026(reaction time) - 0.071(ABC1) - 2.139(Berg 14)) ×100)
- Brain activity PET Imaging [ Time Frame: Through study completion, on average 1 year ]To investigate cerebral glucose uptake in older chronic cannabis users and non-users
