Study Title: Clinical Predictors of Driving Simulator Performance in Persons with Multiple Sclerosis: A Pilot Study
Study Description: People with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can have visual and cognitive problems that may make driving difficult. For example, blurry or double vision may make it difficult to clearly see other road users, lane markings, traffic lights, or stop signs. Also, difficulty thinking, or poor memory may make it difficult to react or make decisions with this information.

This study will compare clinical visual and cognitive test scores with driving performance on a computer-based simulator in drivers with and without MS. Driving performance will measure the driver’s responses and decisions to certain driving situations in residential and downtown areas along a route. Driving situations may include responding to traffic light changes or deciding to turn or drive straight

If you are interested and agree to participate you would be asked to complete the following: - Demographic and medical intake forms - Vision and cognitive tests used in clinical practice for people with Multiple Sclerosis - Driving behaviour questionnaire - Driving performance on a driving simulator

Your participation would involve 1 in-person session in London, ON that will be about 4 hours long.
Recruitment Dates: 2019-01-14 to 2020-01-14
Who can participate: Drivers with and without MS between the ages of 18 and 59 years with a current valid driver’s license (Class G). For further inclusion and exclusion criteria, please contact the study contact below.
