  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We compared reaction times for high-cortical recognition tasks with kana-searching test in a group of 46 normal individuals aged 21 to 83 who gain a full score in Mini-Mental State. The follow-ing tasks of reaction time were used ; simple reac-tion time (SRT), choice reaction time (CRT), mem-ory scanning time (MST) , and visual searching time (VST). The results were consistent and demon-strated that mean reaction time of 46 individuals increased in difficult tasks such as MST or VST. All reaction times increased depending on aging, which became longer in difficult tasks.
