Data from an experiment on reaction times to audio or visual stimuli by Oberlin College students.
A data frame with 72 observations on the following 4 variables.
Time to respond to a stimulus (in ms)
Type of stimulus (
Subjects in a reaction time study were asked to press a button as fast as possible after being exposed to either an auditory stimulus (a burst of white noise) or a visual stimulus (a circle flashing on a computer screen). Average reaction times (ms) were recorded for between 10 and 20 trials for each type of stimulus for each subject. Data also identifies which subjects are musicians.
