Choice Reaction, Part 9

The following scene from the movie Trinity Is STILL My Name! shows how internal self-restraints influence reaction times. Have a look at it. Trinity is played by Terence Hill. He had somehow cheated in the foregoing poker game. Wildcat Hendricks tries to teach him a lesson in a duel. You might have to look a […]

Choice Reaction, Part 8

In contrast to the example in the blog entry Choice Reactions, Part 7 the following example revolves around missing/ fast patterns and some special approaches to compensate for these circumstances. A new analysis tool is used for these observations. I will make deductions about and explain this approach in detail in later blog entries. The […]

Choice Reaction, Part 7

The previous examples just scratched the surface. An in-depth analysis includes much more than just visible patterns to avoid, reduce or optimize choice reactions times. Visible patterns are just one source of information. For example, rules in sport allow further conclusions. An analysis of mechanics and dynamics or background information on certain effects in motor […]

Choice Reaction, Part 4

The foregoing diagram and the theory about availability of information from the blog entry Choice Reaction Time, Part 1 opens another interesting approach to cut choice reaction times. You should look for patterns, which summarize alternatives instead of too specific things. Patterns that exclude as many alternatives as possible are preferable to those that deal […]

Choice Reaction, Part 3

The following robot wins every game. He has a high speed camera to look at his opponent’s movements. His tree diagram has the same patterns and the reaction chain has all elements of a choice reaction. The difference lies in the speed of his pattern recognition and the movement execution.   “Rock, Paper, Scissor” robot […]

Choice Reaction, Part 2

The blog entry Choice Reactions, Part 1 was very theoretical, so now some examples. The game “Rock, Paper, Scissor” is a typical example of a choice reaction. If you are not familiar with the rules, please take a look at this article or this video. First, try to find a relevant pattern and put it […]

Choice Reaction, Part 1

Choice reaction times are a very special subject. One can find many comparisons of studies and background information at Schmidt and Lee [1]. There is a tendency towards rising reaction times due to an increasing number of choices. A direct linear relationship doesn’t seem to exist. The relationship seems to be rather an increase with […]
