This exercise is like birdwatching in the wild. The user must try to memorize the name and song of various common bird species. They then will have to discriminate between images of different species of birds and between different types of songs. At times, these differences may be subtle, which makes this task especially challenging.
This is a cross-modal task mainly involving the right tempo-parietal region of the brain. The purpose of this exercise is to draw upon our working memories of the visual and auditory characteristics of each bird, to practice visual-spatial scanning of the images on the screen, and to practice concentration for this type of material. In some cases, deductive reasoning is needed in order to choose the right match, eliminating the choices that have already been made and those that are most obviously wrong.
In an increasingly noisy world, the ability to detect meaningful sounds in the midst of general background noise becomes very important. This exercise may translate into daily life by helping the user learn skills to follow a conversation with multiple speakers, listen to and critique music, and follow a news broadcast for relevant information.
