How Fast Is Your Brain?

I read on Slashdot that some company called Posit Science had developed a brain speed test based on auditory processing ability. The company posits that the ability to process auditory signals is positively correlated with the ability to process information in general. That is, the better you do on this test, the more likely you are able to process information at a faster rate.

Try the test here: Brain Speed Test. The tutorial is really simple, but when the test picks up, it gets really tough. I missed quite a few once they started getting ridiculously fast. The nice thing is reflex time is not a part of the test. The time it takes for you to produce an answer is not a factor in this test.

Just a quick edit here... the girlfriend blew my response time out of the water with a score of 26 milliseconds.

I'll do it when they make a flash 7 version. Shockwave and my OS don't get along.
