Can We Train Our Brains to Become Safer Drivers?

AXA Research Files #3

Decision making : in this episode of the AXA Research Files, science presenter Greg Foot explores why, wherever there is potential for danger, we often make the wrong choices.

Greg chats to AXA-supported researcher Frederic Dehais from Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace (ISAE) to understand the impact of stress, uncertainty or fatigue on our ability to make the right choices and why we pay more attention to visual warning notifications rather than auditory ones.

Greg also meets Donghyun Ryu from Bangor University, another AXA-supported researcher, looking at how we can lead safer lives by training our brains to better react to hazards. We talked to Frederic Dehais in more detail about his research. You can find that video here.

Also discussed in the film: did you know that horses have almost 360° vision? Discover what we should learn from horses to become safer drivers here.
