BBC's free memory test

My score:

Recognition score ( if you saw it )

Your score: 91%
Average score: 92%

This is a measure of your ability to remember the photos you've seen, regardless of the part in which you saw them. From all 24 photos shown in Parts 1 & 2, you recognised: 22 photo(s).

Temporal memory score ( when you saw it )

Your score: 77%
Average score: 68%

This is a measure of how often you recognised a photo and matched it to the correct part, instead of just remembering which ones you'd seen. From all the photos you recognised, you matched: 17 photo(s) to the correct part.

Sleep scientists say that:

recognition memory for faces is unaffected by sleep loss. A person who has not slept for as much as 35 hours can perform as well as someone who is not sleep deprived.

the area of the brain that controls temporal memory can be affected by prolonged sleep loss and/or ageing. So a healthy 65 year old who sleeps normally would be able to perform this test similarly to a 20 year old who has gone without sleep for 36 hours.

Did about the same as you, 91% on the first and 72% on the second score.

But for me at least that result has less to do with recognising faces as it has to do with recognising entire scenes.
The photos I missed I replaced with other photos with different faces shot in extremely similar light, pose, and background...

The ones I placed correctly were in large part because I recognised the background or pose rather than the face itself.

100% Recognition
79% Temporal memory

Again, remembered the scenes and style rather than the person.
