What is Processing Speed?

Processing speed refers to our ability to perceive, integrate, and respond to visual, auditory, or motor information. It is the pace at which you take information, make sense of it, and begin to respond; it is a reflection of mental efficiency. Input refers to the amount of time it takes a person to understand and combine information. Output refers to the amount of time it takes a person to respond, which might include reacting to a situation or making a decision. Integration is the stage between input and output where information is being interpreted for learning.
