Learn more about this exercise:

In this exercise, your visual attention is highly stimulated. Visual attention is a process that directs a tiny fraction of the information arriving at the primary visual cortex to high-level centers involved in both visual working memory and pattern recognition, which are also stimulated here. The occipital visual cortex is mainly at play here. Frontal and parietal networks also allow for the ability to pay attention to visual stimuli.

In this task, the user must visually analyze sets of objects, discern the differences, and draw conclusions. This exercise challenges attention to detail, visual working memory, and processing speed. These skills are used in everyday tasks such as driving, where one must pay attention to various forms of visual information to make quick decisions that favor both the safety of the individual and others on the road. 

You can modify:

  • The task type (direct comparison, memorization, or both)
  • Number of series (from 1 to 10)
  • The number of images (from 2 to 10)
  • Memorization time (unlimited or from 4 to 10 seconds per image)
  • The response time (unlimited or from 4 to 10 seconds per image).
