Brain Areas Engaged 

Learn more about this exercise:

This exercise stimulates the prefrontal cortex, which interacts with temporal lobe regions in auditory cognition. The ventral prefrontal cortex is essential for auditory and audiovisual working memory. Additionally, our capacity to use language is usually located in the left hemisphere of the brain. Specifically for this exercise, Wernicke’s area is stimulated which is associated with comprehension.

This exercise, is a direct translation to real life. Just like in real life, the user has to listen to a voicemail and remember information regarding the voicemail.
