Short-Term Memory Test

This Short-Term Memory Test is designed by brain training and rehabilitation experts. It can identify your short-term memory level and can also be used for memory rehabilitation training.

Rule: Every time you see a set of numbers, click on the corresponding digit-button in reverse order. For example, if 1 5 2 9 appears, click: 9 2 5 1; if 2 3 5 2 8 appears, click: 8 2 5 3 2.

Attention: The numbers in this test are randomly generated. If you are not familiar with the rules at first, you can repeat the test several times. This does NOT affect the accuracy of the results.

What is Short-term memory?

Short-term memory is a component of the memory system that holds a small amount of information for a brief period, typically a few seconds to a minute. It acts as a temporary storage space where information is kept active or "online" for immediate use. This memory is limited in both capacity and duration, and unless the information is rehearsed or processed further, it is typically forgotten and replaced by new information. Short-term memory plays a crucial role in cognitive tasks such as reasoning, comprehension, and learning.
