Reaction time experiments are a reliable way to test how people processes information as it is presented. In the HumLab, we use this method to test hypotheses from various areas of study. These experiments require the participant to watch a computer screen and follow directions by pressing buttons on a response pad. Participant requirements vary per experiment.
