    Brain :yep: spinal cord was 1.6 metres per millisecond (or something like that) while the brain was 3.

    Does anyone else feel as though they've started gradually changing it to the new spec already, looking at the structure of the questions in this paper and last year's which was recently unlocked? The structure of a lot of the questions seems very different to papers from eg. 2013/2014.

    That was the speed, not the time - a greater speed means that a greater distance was covered per millisecond.

    What did people get for the next part in the brain and spinal cord question when it asked about the reason for different speeds?

    No, spinal cord is faster. With reflexes coordinated by the brain, a message has to be sent to eh brain which takes longer.

    I agree. Seems like they're gradually changing the style of questioning. I don't feel like our paper was anything like the past papers pre-2014

    Is there even a question to ask you which one is faster?
    The question below the calculation is asking you why is the brain faster.
    It is because of less synapse

    Yes, the mean was 1.6/s compared to 3/s for brain. Brain was quicker in absolute terms because there is a shorter distance for the impulse to travel if that's what you mean

    Edit: ohhhh **** sorry I misread what you said you're right!
