Visual reaction time and auditory reaction time (VRT and ART) were measured in 25 right hemiplegics and 25 left hemiplegics in the age group of 40-60 years. There was a significant prolongation of VRT and ART in both the right and left hemiplegics as compared to normals of the same age group. ART following mono-aural stimulation i.e. sound input into the right and left ear separately, was also studied in the subjects. Mono-aural stimulation revealed a prolongation of the ART on contralateral stimulation (i.e. auditory stimulation on the side, opposite to the brain damage) as compared to ipsilateral stimulation (auditory stimulation on the side of brain damage) in the right and left hemiplegics.
