A few seconds of extra latency on the data network will likely go unnoticed; but, on the voice network it can cause anarchy!
Their evaluations were based on three measurements: threshold (the amount of stimulation the child requires before responding); latency to respond (how rapidly the child reacts to the stimulus); and intensity of response.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 128 volunteers showed that valerian significantly improved the sleep habits of self-described poor sleepers and insomniacs by effectively reducing sleep latency.
They have high latency rates or high time delays between the time you start a specific function, like dialing in to your ISP, and the time you actually connect and are good to go.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test - A ten-hour test during which the patient is asked to take a series of naps every two hours and then stay awake between the naps.
Diagnostic Daytime Multiple Sleep Latency Test: Doctors who believe a person is suffering from narcolepsy may request this test.
The test measures sleep latency (the speed with which the patient falls asleep) during a series of planned naps during the day.
The repeated test of sustained wakefulness (RTSW) measures sleep latency by challenging the patient's ability to stay awake.
A multiple sleep latency test, which measures sleep latency (onset) and how quickly REM sleep occurs, may also be used.
The doctrine of latency is mystical and savours of Plato's reminiscence (anamnesis).
