The aim of the study is to examine the effect of cerebral lateralization on visual and auditory simple reaction time and reaction asymmetry in young adults. For this purpose, 52 individuals were divided into 3 groups according to hand preference and their audio-visual reaction times were measured and compared in both hands. The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS 22.0 program. After testing for normality and homogeneity, one-way analysis of variance and LSD correction were performed for multiple groups. According to the data obtained, it was determined that hand preference had no effect on reaction time and reaction asymmetry (p>0.05). As a result, it can be said that lateralization has no effect on reaction time and reaction asymmetry.
