A new study reveals a number of different factors, including smoking, age, education levels, sex, handedness, and family medical history, which can have an impact on reaction time.
Taking higher doses of vitamin D supplements can help improve memory and learning, but negatively impacts reaction time in postmenopausal women with a higher BMI. Researchers suggest the slowed reaction times may contribute to an increased risk of falls in older people.
According to a PLOS ONE study, a person's intraindividual reaction time variability may be an independent predictor of mortality.
A new study reports on increased activity in the prefrontal cortex following exposure to blue wavelength light.
