Target Word (Auditory Working Memory)
The Target Word exercise is a cognitive training task that incorporates auditory memory. It constitutes approximately 15% of the training. In this task, the trainee is visually presented with a target word. The subject is next prompted to listen to a sentence in quiet. The target word is one of the words in the sentence. Following the auditory presentation of the sentence, the trainee is asked to respond via a multiple-choice option by selecting the word that occurs just prior to the target word in the sentence.
