Abstract—This research employed two types of programs to examine the response time to the presented stimuli, as well as missed targets among 20 subjects. The data was also collected on different times of day for all groups of volunteers. Participants completed a questionnaire concerning their experience using a cell phone. For each program, subjects completed six tasks (Baseline, Mental Arithmetic, Synonyms, In Person Conversation, and Cell Phone Conversation). In the stimulus-response, subjects were asked to press certain keys on a keyboard, corresponding to the stimuli presented on the screen. In conclusion, it was found that tasks involving mental imagery were significantly different than tasks requiring simple communication.

Index Terms—cognitive process, cell phone, safety transportation
