Abstract
This study is focused on highlighting the effects of cell phone conversation on time reaction to multiply stimuli. The participants are 60 students at Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, University of Bucharest, age between 20 and 38 years (mean= 23.65; S.D.= 2.73) males and females, rural and urban areas. The instrument was the software measuring reaction time to multiple stimuli (Vienna Tests System, 2007). The results confirm the hypotheses and highlights statistically significant differences between the control group and experimental group (p<0.05). Hence, the participants from experimental group obtained statistically significant correct answers than the control group. Conclusions evidence that cell phone reduce the number of correct answers to visual and auditory stimuli and increased the number of incorrect and omitted answers to visual and auditory stimuli.
Keywords: time reaction to multiple stimuli, visual stimuli, auditory stimuli, experimental group, control group.
