The inner workings of the brain are affected by many factors. In this Reaction Time interactive from Annenberg Learner, you can test your reaction time under different conditions. How does your brain processing change when you are distracted? How about when you see scary or funny pictures? Does your reaction time change when you try to do two tasks at once?
Test your brain. Use the game of baseball to check your reaction time at The Exploratorium. Try to hit a fastball like the major league players do.
Check out the Brain-ology site at the Museum of Natural History. Try out the games, draw your nervous system, and meet a brain scientist who answers kids' "brainy" questions.
Explore your brain parts and find out what job each part has.
