Brief Summary:

Incorporating neurocognitive visual reaction training has been shown to increase bating performance in collegiate baseball players. However, poor methodology, such as lack of a control group and use of an unreliable outcome measure, limit the strength of the previous study. Therefore the purpose of this study is to determine the effects of neurocognitive visual reaction training on reaction time and coordination in an athletic population.

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of neurocognitive visual reaction training on reaction time and coordination.
