Transcript of Can Peppermint Improve reaction times

Data Analysis
As you can see from the graphs there is little change in reaction times except for subject 8
The experimenters wanted to know if peppermint candies would affect subject’s reaction times. Our hypothesis was that if subjects were fed peppermint candies then their reaction time would improve. It appears that the hypothesis was incorrect. Though some reaction times went down, a significant portion did not. On top of that, some of the reaction time increase could also be explained through having taken the test before. Therefore, it is unlikely that peppermint improves reaction speed. If forced to repeat the experiment one of the changes made would be more test subjects, more tests, and more time in between tests. If peppermint candies truly improved reaction times they could be used to enhance athletic performances and other reaction based activities.

Fun Facts
For this experiment the experimenters wanted to know if reaction time could be affected by peppermint. Our hypothesis was that if subjects were fed peppermint candies then their reaction time would be improved.
To test our hypothesis the experimenters found 11 test subjects. First, they would each take a test measuring their reactions times. Next, they all recorded their results. The subjects then ate peppermint candies. After that, the subjects took the
test again. Finally, they recorded their newer results as well.
