Driving is a complex behavior that can be affected by the environment as well as an individual's emotional and cognitive status. Because a neuropsychological approach is useful in identifying the complex combination of factors that could cause risky driving behaviors and because subjective perceptions can misguide the decision-making process, the author propose a neuropsychological approach based on brain wave indexes to identifying risky driving behaviors.
