Naturalistic Driving Study Investigates Self-Regulation Behavior in Early Alzheimer’s Disease

July 27, 2018 - Lyon, FR – Driving is a complex task that involves perceptual, motor and cognitive abilities. These abilities may be affected in early Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. Nevertheless, they continue to drive for more years than people with other dementia syndromes perhaps because of a deficit in self-awareness that prevents them from perceiving their driving difficulties and adapting accordingly. The purpose of the present pilot study was to closely examine the self-regulation behavior of older individuals with AD using a naturalistic driving approach.
