Relationship between reaction time and speed of movement among different age group of teen age school going childrenAuthor(s):
Habib SK and Ashoke Kumar BiswasAbstract:
Reaction time denotes the elapsed time between the presentation of a stimulus and the subsequent behavioural response. “Reaction time is the period from the stimulus to beginning of the over response”. In other words “time from the stimulus to the beginning of movement”. Reaction time is the elapses from the occurrence of the stimulus of the to act to the beginning of the muscle movement.
Method: The study was from the Patha Bhavana of Visva-Bharati University. A total 40 students were selected from different teen age group as subject. 40 subjects were divided into two group each group i.e. one group was 13-15 years and other group was 16-18 years. Again this group has further divided into two groups, one groups is Boys and another groups is Girls.
Criterion measure: Reaction time measured by Nelson Foot Reaction Time and Speed of movement measured by Nelson Hand Reaction Time, those subjects were measured in seconds with the help of Stick drop test.
Statistics: Mean, Standard Deviation and Correlation Coefficient were used. Level of Significance was set at 0.05.
Result: The mean, Standard deviation and correlation coefficient of Reaction time and Speed of movement of 13-15 years Boys 0.190±0.005, 0.193±0.007 and r value 0.2622. And Girls 0.202±0.005, 0.202±0.008 and r value 0.812 seconds respectively. While mean, Standard deviation and correlation coefficient of Reaction time and Speed of movement of 16-18 years Boys 0.189±0.005, 0.188±0.006 and r value 0.977. And Girls 0.205±0.005, 0.204±0.003 and r value 0.604 seconds respectively. Pages: 93-95 | 815 Views 46 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
