The inner workings of the brain are affected by many factors. In this Reaction Time interactive from Annenberg Learner, you can test your reaction time under different conditions. How does your brain processing change when you are distracted? How about when you see scary or funny pictures? Does your reaction time change when you try to do two tasks at once?
Test your brain. Use the game of baseball to check your reaction time at The Exploratorium. Try to hit a fastball like the major league players do.
If you sometimes have trouble remembering important things, maybe the online memory exhibit from The Exploratorium can help. Have fun with these memory activities:
