Author(s): Shubham Kumar

Abstract: Reaction time is the time taken to react to a stimulus. In cognitive psychology, reaction time (RT) is used to measure the amount of time that it takes an individual to process information. In research studies, reaction time measures have been commonly used to assess the level of alertness of the Judokas and Wrestlers. The results of the research study on the Auditory and Audio-Visual reactions are commonly used for the purpose of evaluating Judo and Wrestling skills. The objective of the study aimed at determining comparison in measurements of the reaction time of male judokas and wrestlers against the auditory signal and audio-visual signal. The sample of the study comprised a group of 32 Male (Judokas and Wrestlers) of age group between 18-23 Years. Two different types of stimuli were employed in research through VTS Machine for the assessment of reaction time (RT) i.e. Auditory Signal and Audio-Visual Signal. T-test was used to compare the Auditory and Audio-Visual Reaction Time. Judokas and Wrestlers were found to React faster against Auditory stimulus.
