Your brain and body rarely work independently of one another. Every human reacts to stimulus every time they move, train or compete. This process known as Reaction Time involves both the brain and the body working together to recognize, process and react. Reaction Time is the amount of time that takes place between the recognition of something and when we react to it. If you can do this faster and with accuracy you will enhance your personal human performance and ultimately own every scenario.
RECOGNIZE. PROCESS. REACT.
is seeing, hearing, or feeling a stimulus. Doing this with certainty is essential.
Example: When the light turns green at the beginning of a drag race, the light is received by the driver’s eyes. (They recognize the visual stimulus)
is the phase after recognition where the brain interprets the stimulus and decides what it wants the body to do.
Example: The driver, after seeing the light turn green, decides what action to take. (They process the visual stimulus based on the task or goal)
is the action that comes as a result of processing.
Example: After the driver processes the stimulus, they press down on the accelerator. (The reaction in response to the stimulus)
