Welcome to the sleep dependent memory experiment

Welcome to the Sleep-dependent Memory Experiment!

  • This experiment is designed to test how well you process memory during your sleep. This file contains the training session for the experiment.

  • During this session, which should be conducted in the evening, you will learn 40 word pairs and will be tested on them.

  • In your next session, which should be conducted the morning after you complete this session, you will again be tested on the word pairs.

  • After you have completed both tests, you can use the accompanying answer key to score your responses. Directions for calculating your sleep-dependent memory score are included on the answer key.

Press the space bar to advance to the experiment instructions.


Experiment instructions

Experiment Instructions

  • In this experiment, you will be given a set of word pairs. An example of a word pair is:

    • POLICE - CAR

  • Each word pair will be displayed for 4 seconds. The presentation will proceed automatically; you will not need to advance the slides.

  • Your task is to remember the association between each word in the word pair. After you have seen all of the word pairs, you will be tested on each pair.

    • During the test, you will be given the first word in the pair (POLICE) and will be asked to recall the second word (CAR).

  • Please pay close attention to each word pair.

  • Good luck!

When you are ready to begin the study phase, press the space bar.
