Dr. Bindesh Patel and Dr. Payal RathiAbstract: Background & Aim:
Many researches show that sports activity reduces Visual Reaction Time (VRT), which is a reliable indicator of rate of processing of sensory stimuli by central nervous system. The present study is conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of exercises to improve VRT.
Materials and Methods: Total 32 participants were selected for research via convenient random sampling method. Two groups of 16 students were formed. Ruler drop method was used to evaluate the VRT. Experimental group performed specific exercises weekly twice for four weeks. Control group was not given any exercises. Re-evaluation was done after four weeks.
Result: Paired t-test was done to assess the improvement. Experimental group did not show significant improvement compare to control group after the 4 weeks of exercise program.
Conclusion: Dosage of both the exercises must be increased to get the significant improvement in the Visual Reaction Time (VRT). Pages: 143-147 | 210 Views 23 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
