I'm asking this because everytime i go to the cinemas, I'm always under the 
impression that sound and image aren't synchronized. My hypothesis is: since I 
have excellent visual reflexes, the visual information might be treated before 
the audio information, thus creating this minute gap between image and sound in 
movies. I was also wondering if Vitamin A, sodium and potassium intake affect 
reflex time. (Vitamin A for photoreceptors). Thank you!
