Brief description of research area: Cannabis impairment
Research Project 1
Title: Critical review of the literature on cannabis-related impairment
Many studies (laboratory, simulator, and on-road) have been published on the level of impairment due to the recent use of cannabis. These studies have been reviewed a number of times. However, the reviews have generally failed to ‘calibrate’ the impairment. The practical (e.g., road-safety) implication of the impairment cannot therefore easily be assessed. The aim of this project would be to select a number of recent impairment studies, and compare the levels of cannabis-related impairment with the levels found in a parallel area of research, such as the research on aging.
Projects available for:
Honours / HDR / Masters / Mphil
Meetings would be held outside the university precincts – possibly in cafes
