Background: Reaction time is one of the important methods to study a person’s central information processing speed and is an index of sensory, motor and cognitive processes. Auditory reaction time, an important psychophysical method useful for relating mental events to physical measures is significantly correlated to changes in breathing period. Objective of the study was to evaluate effect of Anulom Vilom pranayam on auditory reaction time. Methods: 60 volunteers from a tertiary care hospital…

TLDR
Regular practice of pranayam improves reaction time and higher brain functions, and is suggested to enhance physical and emotional health and performance of personnel.
Influence of Yoga on Audiovisual Reaction Time of Medical Students
Aim: The present study is to assess the alteration in auditory and visual reaction time, which is an index of central nervous system processing, among medical students. Materials and Methods: Eighty
Effect of yogic relaxation technique on auditory and visual reaction times
TLDR
The significant decrease in Auditory and Visual Reaction Time shows that DRT helps to increase the awareness and attention of individuals.

TLDR
There is a decline in the reaction time values (both the audio and visual) after the pranayama training, which is complementary to overall stress management.
Alternate nostril breathing: a systematic review of clinical trials
The focus of this research paper is to evaluate independent effects of the yogic breathing exercise, alternate nostril breathing (ANB), on human physiological and cognitive functions. Currently,
Effect of Anulom Vilom Pranayam on auditory reaction time in Indian population aged 18-22 years -
TLDR
Anulom Vilom pranayam which observed to reduce auditory reaction time have health promoting, boosting, toning effects on central neural structures; quantity, pattern of release of neurotransmitters and mental interaction involved in information processing.

Effect of premenstrual stress on audiovisual reaction time and audiogram.
TLDR
A significant increase in weight and prolongation in auditory reaction time and visual reaction time (VRT) were observed during premenstrual phase, which could be attributed to fluid and salt retention due to overain steroids leading to decrease in the processing capability of central nervous system.
Effect of slow and fast pranayams on reaction time and cardiorespiratory variables.
TLDR
It is concluded that different types of pranayams produce different physiological responses in normal young volunteers.
IMMEDIATE EFFECT OF 'NADI -SHODHANA PRANAYAMA' ON SOME SELECTED PARAMETERS OF CARDIOVASCULAR, PULMONARY, AND HIGHER FUNCTIONS OF BRAIN
TLDR
The present study suggests that the ‘Nadi-shodhana Pranayama’ rapidly alters cardiopulmonary responses and improves simple problem solving.
Effect of yogasanas on the visual and auditory reaction time.
TLDR
Visual and auditory reaction time (VRT, ART) was studied in 83 healthy male subjects of 30-40 years of age who had never practiced yogasanas before and showed a significant reduction in Group A (P less than .05) and Group B (P more than .001).
Autonomic functions and audiovisual reaction time in heroin addicts.
TLDR
Auditory reaction time (ART) and visual reacted time (VRT) were significantly prolonged in addicts, indicating deterioration of processing capability of CNS, or poor sensory-motor performance, or both.
Effect of yoga training on reaction time, respiratory endurance and muscle strength.
TLDR
The results show that yoga practice for 12 weeks results in significant reduction in visual and auditory RTs and significant increase in respiratory pressures, breath holding times and HGS.
Effect of Yoga asanas on nerve conduction in type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
Yoga asanas have a beneficial effect on glycaemic control and improve nerve function in mild to moderate Type 2 diabetes with sub-clinical neuropathy, indicating that diabetes is a slowly progressive disease involving the nerves.

TLDR
A 30 min programme of yogic stretch and breathing exercises which is simple to learn and which can be practised even by the elderly had a markedly 'invigorating' effect on perceptions of both mental and physical energy and increased high positive mood.
The effect of voluntary breathing on reaction time.
TLDR
Voluntary control of inspiration induced concomitant changes in breathing period and minute ventilation, which was probably due to neuromuscular rather than humoral factors.
The scientific basis of yoga.
TLDR
An extensive study on Yogic practices at Banaras Hindu University shows beneficial effects; reduction in body weight and a significantly improved pattern of respiratory functions, with lowered rate of respiration, increased rate of expansion of the chest, and increased vital capacity and breath-holding time.
