*(My 2ms monitor has lower ghosting than my 1ms monitor. These values are things the makers of the monitor pull out of their asses.)

Pixel response time is the average time a pixel should complete a white to black transition. Highest case times are for white to black back to white which is the longest period (255-0-255). This affects ghosting and overdrive artifacts (which aim to reduce white to black response times while overshooting other closer colors, causing inverse ghosting). Signal processing time is processing time on the monitor scaler board itself, and higher gives more input lag. Most good TN panels have a signal processing time far below 4 ms.
There's also frame time input lag from vsync (directly tied to 1000/hz refresh rate) and video card processing lag also (extreme amounts of lag are often caused by the video card at low framerates, particularly when high levels of anti-aliasing or other processing are used).
