The task

Using attention and verbal memory, your client must memorize a list of words in order to discriminate them from words they have not seen in a recall task.


What It Trains

The hippocampus is the center for memory in the brain, with connections throughout the brain to key cognitive regions. Broca’s area in the left frontal lobe is responsible for language production while Wernicke’s area in the left temporal lobe is responsible for language comprehension. These two important language areas have connections to the hippocampus. Your client will have to engage these memory and language areas of the brain to develop effective strategies to memorize, recognize, and recall words. This task can be used to practice skills such as remembering information from a doctor’s appointment, remembering the name of a product to be searched for in a store, and remembering names of people or places familiar to your client.


You can modify the number of words to memorize (6, 9, 12, 15, 20, or 25), the variety of themes (small, average or large), the memorization time (unlimited, 120, 90, 75, 60, or 40 seconds), and the time for recall (unlimited, 120, 90, 75, 60, or 40 seconds).
