Abstract:

Identifying Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathology decades before progression to the prodromal stage is currently achieved by biomarkers derived from positron emission tomography, cerebrospinal fluid, or blood-plasma. Our research uses daily driving behavior as a digital marker to predict biomarker positivity and determine the most salient features that characterize changes over time among older drivers.
