Human ethology: Age and sex differences in mall walking
Perceptual and Motor Skills
3 PART I
Well-controlled experimental research has examined the biomechanical aspects of walking in homo sapiens on a track. The research reported here also examined cadence, velocity, and stride length for estimated ages ranging from 15 to over 55 years but in a shopping mall. Women at all ages walked faster than men in the mall setting which was opposite to what was found in the track research. Apparendy context may influence how fast people walk. Hunter-gatherer differences could explain these results. © Perceptual and Motor Skills 1997.
