Memory Grid Tutorial

In Memory Grid you will be presented with multiple pairs of cards that will remain ‘face down’. You will hear a syllable when clicking on each card; in addition, each card has a matching card. Your task is to click on each card, remember the syllable you hear and upon finding the matching card, click on the card that first voiced that syllable. The challenge with memory grid is that you have a set number of clicks to match all the cards.

Here is how Memory Grid works:

  1. Once you click “START” you will be presented with multiple pairs of cards. They will remain ‘face down’. All cards are paired, so each card will have a matching card.
  2. Click on any card and listen to the syllable it says. You need to remember which card this is and the syllable.
  3. Continue to click on the other cards, remember the syllable each card says. Stay aware of the ‘click counter’ (17 in the example below), as you have this many clicks/touches (in case of touchscreens) to match all the cards.
  4. If a card says a syllable you heard another card say, click on the card that first said that syllable. Once you make a correct match, the pair of cards will disappear.
  5. Repeat this process until you have matched all the cards, or, run out of clicks in the ‘click counter’.

    Note: The syllables may sound unusual as our scientists have carefully processed natural speech to engage the brain’s relevant processing machinery more effectively.

More useful information:

  1. You can also try the step by step instructions by clicking the ‘i’ button at the bottom right corner of the exercise screen shown below.

    Note: When you try an exercise in a new level, the instruction mode is on by default. The way you can tell whether you are in instruction mode or exercise mode is to note the orange-color banner on top of the exercise screen which looks like the one below. You can always click on the ‘i’ to toggle between instruction mode and exercise mode.

  2. As you progress, the exercise will grow more challenging in the following ways:

    • The syllables to match change, becoming more similar.
    • The speech processing decreases.
    • The voice changes.
  3. Control buttons are found at the bottom right of the exercise screen. You can use these buttons to do the following:

    • If at any time you wish to repeat the Instructions on a particular exercise, push the’ i’ button.
    • If at any time you need to Exit an exercise, push the X button.
    • If at any time you wish to Pause the exercise, push the II button.
    • If you want to make the exercise Full screen for easier viewing, push Full screen button.
