Memory Scanning Test

You first see a set of 5 digits in a row on the screen, for example:

You memorise these five digits, and then see single digits on the screen one at a time. For each digit, you should press the YES button  if the number was one of the five in the original set, NO if not. For example if you see 7, you should press YES, if you see 9 you should press NO

This is a reaction time task, so you should always respond as quickly as possible, while avoiding errors. We record the reaction times averaged over the test, and the total number of errors. We also record reaction times separately for numbers that are in the set and for those that are not 

This test can be run on a tablet computer or a Java-enabled mobile phone. The test normally lasts about three minutes.
