Precisely this kind of change in neural action and in reaction time is at the basis of voluntary action.
The first thing that strikes us is the fact that many test-persons show a marked prolongation of the reaction time.
With so simple a performance, the reaction time is very short, and delicate apparatus must be employed to measure it.
The tapping experiment described in the first chapter can now be repeated and the results taken as a measure of reaction time.
