Seeking volunteers for reaction time, cognitive function study

The Department of Human Performance Studies-Exercise Science, in collaboration with the Department of Psychology-Clinical Psychology, is seeking volunteers for a study. The study will focus on the accuracy of reaction time and cognitive function tests in comparison with traditional tests widely accepted and used in a clinical and sport setting.

The procedures will include a study of participants’ reaction time, cognitive function and balance. These will then be assessed with different mobile device applications, a computer-based test and traditional paper tests. Three to five minute breaks will be allowed between tests. Participation will include a one-time, two-hour and 30-minute session. Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria:

  • Participants must be age 18 or older

The study will be conducted at the Heskett Center Human Performance Lab (Room 210). For more information, contact Dr. Heidi Bell at 316-393-3339, or email
