Face Memory Test

Face Memory Test:

My results:

Recognition score (if you saw it) 

Your score: 100%
Average score: 92%

This is a measure of your ability to remember the photos you've seen,
regardless of the part in which you saw them. From all 24 photos shown
in Parts 1 & 2, you recognized: 24 photo(s).

Temporal memory score (when you saw it) 

Your score: 95%
Average score: 68%

This is a measure of how often you recognized a photo and matched it to
the correct part, instead of just remembering which ones you'd seen.
From all the photos you recognized, you matched: 23 photo(s) to the
correct part.

Sleep scientists say that:
- Recognition memory for faces is unaffected by sleep loss. A person who
has not slept for as much as 35 hours can perform as well as someone who
is not sleep deprived.
- The area of the brain that controls temporal memory can be affected by
prolonged sleep loss and/or ageing. So a healthy 65 year old who sleeps
normally would be able to perform this test similarly to a 20 year old
who has gone without sleep for 36 hours.
