Hello, I know nothing of neurobiology and was wondering whether we had enough knowledge of the brain to answer this yet. Would increasing a man's reaction speed to an audio stimuli transfer to visual ones too?
Thanks.

I don't see why it wouldn't, but how would you do that (speed up reaction)?

Oh, I'm a martial artist without anyone to train with for a while. I have a lil program designed to emit adjustable random beeps. I do various moves as soon as I hear a beep. It's the visual cues that would be important for me though, perhaps I should just try to modify the program.

.... having played numerous high adrenaline sports I can attest to that the fact that visual responsiveness, correlating to physical response times, increases as adrenaline courses though the body, attributable to hightened neurological activity! I'm not sure if that contributes to your cause.... but there it is anyway!

How about someone designs the scientific experiment? You know, materials and methods, with controls, replicates etc and give poor Scourge a head start.

I know im just too new here but if the more wise ones let me i will rather give a mixed answer.
First, we all know that the audio process and the visual process are radicated in different parts of brain. So, if you train yourself on the audio latency response by clicking for example, a button after a sound you will train all the way from the aferent neurons on the inner ear to the brain part which process such signal. After that the signal will go till the pre-motor cortex to motor cortex related to your hand movement and finally to your finger.
Second, ¿how this will affects to the visual responsiveness? Well, no change will be made on the signal way from the retine to the visual cortex, and from visual cortex to the pre-motor cortex. But, you will benefit from the training on the pre-motor cortex and above, because its been already used on the sound training.
Of course, you can benefit all your sistem by training on focus and general activation. Anywhere, any especific training will mainly improve the specific sub-system at which this training its related to.
Its just my opinion and sorry if my english its not perfect.

I wonder if doing dual n-back training would help, as it is reported to enhance fluid intelligence.

From a neuroanatomical perspective, there is indeed a "correlation".
The superior colliculus in the midbrain is associated with visual reflexes. The inferior colliculus, that is located just below(inferior) to the superior colliculus is associated with auditory reflexes.
The inferior colliculus receives inputs from the superior colliculus.
