Nerve Impulse Speed
Hello. I was lately thinking about the reaction time of
the brain to react to something seen and then resend the command for an
action to be taken. I was wondering if thise speed can be sped up
somehow. The speed at which it runs now is already phonominal but I was
curious if the actual speed of the brains commands can be increased, say
by eating certain minerals, or playing or reading certain things, etc.
One chemical that can speed up the reaction time is adreneline. As for other
chemicals, I have not heard of anything on the market right now that can
speed up reaction time. Possibly meds that increase alertness would allow
the reaction time to be greater. Playing certain things or doing "brain
excercises" can stimulate the brain. If you want your reaction time to
increase, the best way is gain your focus and practice.
