Abstract:

Chapter 7When driving is dangerous: Arousal, assessment, and hazard perception; Physiological consequences of confronting a dangerous situation; Memory for threatening situations; Assessing driving scenes; Hazard perception; Summary; Chapter 8Appraisal, efficacy, and action; Beliefs about attitudes; Assessments of ourselves and others; Developing self-efficacy; Self-efficacy and actual ability; Appraisal, efficacy, and emotion-driven actions; Summary; Chapter 9Age, neurological damage, disease, and driving; Age and driving; Traumatic brain injury and driving; Dementia and driving.

This book closely examines what is involved in driving. It identifies the aspects of perception, attention, learning, memory, decision making and action control which are drawn upon in order to enable us to drive, and the brain systems involved. It attempts to show how studying tasks such as driving can help to understand how these fundamental aspects of cognition combine to facilitate performance in complex everyday tasks. In doing so it shows how a very broad range of laboratory based findings can be applied, and that through our attempts to apply this knowledge to complex everyday tasks, we.
