I learned that females did better in all of the tests except for the vertically inverted test. I think this is because more males play video games (which commonly have a vertical inversion option) than their female counterparts. Test A and test D were the easiest and test B and test C were the hardest because it is easier for your brain to be right or completely backward. It is much more difficult for your brain to invert one variable than none or both. As males get older their time will improve and as females get older their time will increase.

Questions for Further Research

If I was to redo this project, I would get more participants because it will always show a better trend in the data and allow for a more accurate reading of the data and a better trend line for a trend.

I would see if females also have a faster reaction time than males with older females and males. If the females to it would be very interesting to see why the females have a faster reaction time, but take longer to adjust to patterns.
