Naturalistic driving as a functional neurobehavioral marker of preclinical and symptomatic Alzheimer disease

The goal of this project is to examine whether naturalistic driving can distinguish persons with and without preclinical AD among cognitively normal individuals and if driving behavior can improve prediction of incident cognitive impairment and dementia.

The Impact of Depression and Preclinical Alzheimer Disease on Driving Among Older Adults

The goal of this project is to examine whether major depression and preclinical AD, combined, predict faster longitudinal change in driving behavior among older adults, and assess the impact of medications (antidepressants), major depression, and preclinical AD on naturalistic driving.

Preclinical Alzheimer Disease and Driving

The goal of this research is to determine whether preclinical AD predicts cross-sectional differences and longitudinal changes in naturalistic driving and to identify driving, biomarker, clinical, physical, and behavioral predictors of driving cessation, and to develop predictive models using these variables.
