The Effect of Cell Phone Use on Reaction Time
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences / None
Region:North Bay
City:North Bay, ON
School:St. Hubert E.S.
Abstract:The purpose of this project was to determine the effect of cell phone use on reaction time. The reaction time of subjects was tested while concentrating on a reaction time test exclusively and while using a hand-held and hands-free cell phone. The results indicated that reaction time becomes slower when talking on a cell-phone and that age/ gender are also variables that affect reaction time.
