Slow reaction time in midlife linked to risk of early death
Slow reaction time in midlife linked to risk of early death (February 3, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From London - Middle aged adults with slow reaction time are at increased risk of early death, according to a report published in PLOS ONE. Researchers studied data on over 5,000 individuals taking part in a long term study. Participants had their reaction time measured in the early 90s and were followed for 15 years. Results showed that those with slower reaction times in midlife were at 25% increased risk dying during the study period when compared to those with avg. reaction times. This increased risk remained even after accounting for risk factors such as age, sex, and lifestyle factors.
