Continuous Paired Associate Learning Test Description

STAGE 1

The pre-test on-screen instructions ask: “In what locations do these pictures belong”

In this test, the subject must learn and remember the pictures hidden beneath different locations on the screen. The subject must tap the target on the central location to begin. As each picture to be learned is revealed, the subject must tap each location and remember where the picture was located.

STAGE 2

The pre-test on-screen instructions ask: “In what locations do these pictures belong”

Now the same pictures will be presented in the center of the screen, and the subject must tap on the peripheral location where that picture previously appeared.

Primary Outcome measure
