Faculty mentor: Amy McDonnell

This research examined the effect of listening to a degraded speech on driving performance. Past studies have shown that conversing while driving significantly decreases driving performance. However, past research lacks ecological validity since the speech participants listened to was clear and pristine. Here, we examined whether listening to degraded speech produces similar results. Results of this study indicate that listening to degraded speech puts an extra cognitive load on drivers.
