Higher level gait disorders are common in the elderly. The pathophysiology of these gait disorders is poorly understood, and the nomenclature used to describe them is confusing and the subject of ongoing debate. It is suggested that higher level gait disorders can be explained in terms of breakdown in the organization of equilibrium and locomotion.
