Ray recently completed his Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours, Class I) at UNSW. His thesis examined how different factors might influence people’s decision making in a simple brightness discrimination task. He also has research experience looking at the association between eye movement and risky decision making. More recently, Ray has developed a particular interest in identifying risk factors that are associated with decline in cognitive health and exploring potential interventions to minimise this decline. At NeuRa, he currently works on the PATH Through Life Project and the Better Drive Program.

Driving Longer and Better: Evidenced-based interventions for older drivers

Older drivers have relatively high crash rates and are increasing in number. We aim to evaluate the relative effectiveness and cost-efficiency of interventions for older drivers. A randomized controlled trial comparing driving lessons, personalized feedback on driving skill, and a groupbased road-rules refresher course will be conducted. If effective, interventions will improve driving safety, reduce costs associated with crashes,

and maintain social participation.
