Two Force Science Research Center presentations on findings about police driving were made last in May at the annual meeting of the prestigious Cognitive Neuroscience Society in New York.

 

The reports concerned studies in England last summer by a research team led by psychology faculty member and Force Science Research Center technical advisor Jonathan Page.

 

One of Page's experiments found that officers with intensive, specialized training in pursuit driving demonstrated memory skills in traffic situations far superior to officers without such training. The other focused on the difficulty of attempting to multi-task successfully while driving under stressful conditions.
