Displaced Characters

The task

In this exercise, your client must discern which figures are present in one list and are not present in a second list. At the beginning of the task, your client will see two lists side by side. Next, they will have to compare the lists on separate screens.


What It Trains

This task will help your client practice attention to detail, memorization techniques, and figure discrimation. In everyday life, we use these skills to remember the meanings of traffic signs we come across, how to tell the difference between products in a store aisle, and how to distinguish one medication from another. Not only will your client have to remember what they have seen, but they will also have to remember what they have not seen. This task engages the ventral visual processing stream and the connections to the working memory “hotspots” of the brain.


A very high degree of control is available. The parameters that can be selected are the type of exercise (direct comparison or memorization), the number of sequenced series (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or10), the number of characters (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10) and the type of characters (Egyptian, Thai, Runes, Mayan, Japanese, or Indian), the time for memorization per figure (unlimited, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, or 4 seconds), and the time for recall per figure (unlimited, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, or 4 seconds).
