What are the differences in cognitive performance between individuals with and without fibromyalgia? What are factors that might be related to better cognitive performance, and does fall risk have to do with it? Barbara Cherry, Ph.D, will discus her latest published study on cognitive performance in older adults and individuals who experience fibromyalgia and chronic pain.


The study, "Positive Associations Between Physical and Cognitive Performance Measures in Fibromyalgia," was published by the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine.
