Face Memory Tests

Three 5 minutes tests will assess your ability to remember and recognize faces at different ages, and in different orientations. Once you have completed all three tests, we will tell you how your performance compares with the performance of the average person.

While doing badly on this test does not mean that you have face recognition or other visual recognition impairments, it can be an indicator of poor memory for faces.

Please maximize your browser window before you begin. Be sure you have at least 15 minutes and a quiet environment. Finally, we ask you not to use any outside memory aids (such as taking notes) while taking this test.
