Abstract : The contributions of reaction time measures in studying and understanding the reading process are the focus of this paper. First, the evolution of reaction time from that of a research topic per se so that of a methodological tool is traced. Second, the role of RT measures in memory retrieval and memory representation research is examined with an eye toward delineating the value of both the method and the results in developing more precise models of the reading process.
