VIDEO - Executive Function

VideoThis video caught my attention as Dr. Doebel starts out by talking about how difficult it is to learn to drive. She explained that it was not due to learning later on in life rather than at 16 and that she would come back from her lessons totally wiped out. It was due to heavy use of the brain's executive function.

Would you like to be a better driver? There is really no quick fix she says, you have to develop goals and strategies for yourself and then work at them.

As a driver with many years experience, who mostly has tried to do better all the time - better being undefined here, you'll notice -  I appreciated that piece. 

Mind you, I still reckon I would be a better driver than her, in pretty much every circumstance. But she does make you think.
