Information processing is difficult to observe by most people because it involves self monitoring of one’s thinking. The process under which the cognitive functions is influenced by the rate at which different people analyze and synthesise information. However, though this is true, a measure of the speed in which information is processed is still new within the Indonesian perspective. Currently, there is little or no research on this aspect. In this regard, the present research note briefly explains a research on speed with which students process instructional or classroom information; in both sciences and social science disciplines of senior high school and or universities. The behavioral and performance tendencies displayed by students have not been verified in a concrete and measurable manner. It is therefore, upon this background that we picked interest to scientifically study the rate at which information is processed among students within the Indonesian perspective in an effort to discover the rate at which analysis and synthesization of instructional information in social and science disciplines is conducted. This study was multidiscipline one and new in nature regarding speed of information processing within senior high school and or university students in Indonesia. It integrates neural aspects, information and communication technologies, combined with instructional technology together with biological components to establish how students learn and interpret concepts in their day today classroom sessions, hence lying within the range bio-communication, health communication and of course instructional communication in education.  The methodology and tools used in the present study were the Laboratory Experiment method and Electroencephalography- a method that involves monitoring of the electrical functions of the brain, including information processing among learners.
