Visual and auditory reaction time (VRT, ART) was studied in 83 healthy male subjects of 30-40 years of age who had never practiced yogasanas before. These subjects were divided into two groups viz. Group A whose VRT and ART was determined after 1 hr. yogasanas and Group B whose ART and VRT was determined after 6 weeks yogasanas training programme. VRT and ART showed a significant reduction in Group A (P less than .05) and Group B (P less than .001).
