Proposed Collection: Quantification of Behavioral and Physiological Effects of Drugs Using a Mobile Scalable Device, 0925-New, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: This study will examine the effectiveness of a mobile scalable device to detect the impairing effects of different drugs. The primary purpose of the data collected is to determine eligibility in a driving simulation study and to verify the effectiveness of the experimental manipulations. The findings will provide valuable information concerning the utility and effectiveness of mobile, smartphone/tablet-based neurocognitive assessment that can provide a multifactorial evaluation of cognitive functioning associated with impaired driving.

OMB approval is requested for 18 months. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 859.
