How Distracted Are You?
Region:Western Manitoba
City:Brandon, MB
School:Vincent Massey
Abstract:Distractions do increase reaction time and age is a factor. Younger participants completed a reaction time task much faster than older participants. However, when distracted, the advantage for younger participants was much smaller. These results demonstrate that distraction significantly slows down reaction time among younger participants considerably more than among middle-aged and older participants.
