Quick reactions ’long life link’ 反應快活得比較久


People with quick reactions are likely to live longer than those less quick off the mark, a study suggests.


The joint Edinburgh University and Medical Research Council team looked at the response rates of more than 7,400 people, the journal Intelligence said.


Researchers found those with the slowest reactions were 2.6 times more likely to die prematurely.


They said quick reactions may be a sign of intelligence.


Reaction times were taken using a computer programme during the 1980s along with range of other factors including alcohol intake, smoking habits, blood pressure and weight. The average age of those studied was 46.


Dr Geoff Der, one of the authors of the report, said: "Research has shown that there is a correlation between reaction times and intelligence.
