Some interesting research reported in the latest Popular Science about some recent studies. The claim has aways been that action beats reaction, but a series of tests found that those who reacted to movement in the testing were able to complete the same movement (pushing a button) approximately 22 milliseconds faster than the person who initiated the action. Tentative ideas are that the "react" command in the brain results in signals and muscle controls take a different, faster path than the "act" command uses. Something worth thinking about in the decision-making process. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
