Analyzed relation between sleep disorders and risk perception by drivers with disorder
Date:10/28/2010

This release is available in Spanish.

Within the framework of a recent research project, University of Granada researchers will analyse how sleep disorders affect risk perception in driving. To such purpose, three last-generation simulators provided by the Faculty of Psychology will be employed.

The purpose of the first study will be to analyse how a specific sleep disorderobstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects risk perception in driving, as well as the efficacy of the therapies in development to treat it. Concretely, University of Granada researchers will study how different treatments for OSA improve risk perception in simulated driving. To such purpose, they employed the motorcycle simulator Honda Riding Trainer (HRT) using a multidimensional methodology (psychological, physical, behavioural and subjective measurements).

At present, the University of Granada counts on the only research centre in Europe devoted to study the mental mechanisms leading individuals to risky behaviours when riding a motorcycle. This study could be useful in the future to modify and avoid such behaviours. The Faculty of Psychology was provided with three last-generation simulators in 2009 usually employed to study this type of disorders, within the framework of an agreement signed with the company Honda Motor Co. (Europe).

Innovative software

The simulators have an innovative software developed by Honda Motor Co. The research group led by Gualberto Buela Casal (University of Granada Psychophysiology Laboratory), and the Department of Experimental Psychology professor Antonio Cndido, and made up of researchers Leandro L. Di Stasi, Carolina Daz, Ral Quevedo Blasco and David Montalbn will analyse how sleep disorders affect ris
