Study Name and Description:
MEMORY FOR SOUNDS AND COLORED SQUARES
In this study, participants will be asked to remember colored squares and sounds presented together or separately. When a single colored square or tone is presented, participants must determine if it’s same or different from the ones that were just seen or heard. A puzzle task or a number recall task will be administered at the end of each session.
