Abstract:Our project involved measuring and investigating human reaction time. We constructed our own electronic test apparatus and tested 35 people with a simple visual stimulus. When retested, our test subjects displayed much longer reaction times if they were engaged in conversation. Our research has confirmed the suspected hazards of using cell phones while driving.
