Simple Reaction-Times to Speech and Non-Speech Stimuli

  title={Simple Reaction-Times to Speech and Non-Speech Stimuli},
  author={Dennis B. Fry},
Two experiments were carried out involving the measurement of simple reaction-time when subjects responded to speech and to non-speech stimuli. In the first, subjects were required to make a speech response (uttering the vowel [a: ]) to one speech stimulus (the vowel [a: ]) and three non-speech stimuli (a complex tone, a telephone bell and a click). The click stimulus gave significantly longer reaction-times than the other three stimuli; since all stimuli were equated for peak intensity… CONTINUE READING
