Brain Areas Engaged 

Learn more about this exercise:

The prefrontal cortex and the parietal cortex are more active when participants complete two tasks at once, compared to when they process a single task. These brain regions thus appear to be essential for multitasking.

Multi-tasking can be hard, but sometimes we must pay attention to two things at once. In this exercise, you must first do a visual task, then an auditory task, then both tasks at the same time. We often have to use our visual attention and memory in combination with our auditory processing skills and memory in order to effectively participate in school, work, and conversations with friends, as well as do things such as driving. Train your brain to learn the skills needed in order to be able to intake, process, and utilize both visual and auditory information at the same time.

You can modify:

  • The number of series (for both simple and double tasks, from 4 to 30)
  • The signs display time (from 200ms to unlimited)
  • The size of the grid (from 2 to 16 cells)
  • The number of sound categories (from 2 to 5)
