A new approach to measure the speed of cognitive behaviour is introduced. The decomposition of reaction time allows to identify different stages: perception, comparison steps and motoric organization. For this reason the additive factor method and the analysis of event-related potentials is used. The results show specific decelerations in elderly subjects and alcoholics. The application of the method in clinical psychodiagnostic and psychopharmacology is discussed.
