Automaticity and the Automobile – Training more highly skilled, safe, and attentive drivers

March 7 - March 8

In this session, Mike offers the keynote address for the Pacific NW Driver & Traffic Safety Conference. In this offering, Mike describes motor learning and motor control literature that supports skilled human performance in the presence of distractions. Literature is clearly in support of the fall-risk in humans, especially those with advanced age or cognitive impairment, when distracted. Additionally, research informs us that people can improve their tolerance to distractions in sport, school, daily mobility and….yet to be studied – driving. As we merge these knowledge bases and continue to advance the field of safe driver training – is there a role for training with “a dosage of distractions”?
