Situation Awareness

Situation Awareness

Situation Awareness (SA) has been a topic of debate for quite sometime now. Apart from a constant struggle about the correct definition, the way it is studied is limited to complex, high risk situations. I am trying to define SA so that it could be applied to all situations, independent of the task complexity.

I am also testing effect of Situation Awareness on different aspects in the life of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) patients. These include talking, walking and day-to-day activities. I hope this study would open new research and training techniques for improving the lives of PD patients as it has never been done before.
