Daniel Seichepine, professor and program coordinator of neuropsychology, recently had a study published in the Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neurology.

The study centered on whether a combination of office-based tests could be helpful in screening for on-road driving performance in older adults with and without mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia. Seichepine and his colleagues examined 44 control participants, 20 with MCI and 20 with dementia, and found that that these office tests may be helpful in identifying at-risk drivers.
