ITACA Dual N-Back

The computerised version of the classic neurocognitive test for the assessment of working memory.

The n-back task is a continuous performance task that is commonly used as an assessment in psychology and cognitive neuroscience to measure central executive function from working memory. The n-back was introduced by Wayne Kirchner in 1958. The subject is presented with a sequence of stimuli, and the task consists of indicating when the current stimulus matches the one from n steps earlier in the sequence. The load factor n can be adjusted to make the task more or less difficult. The dual-task n-back task is a variation that was proposed by Susanne Jaeggi et al. in 2003. In the dual-task paradigm, two independent sequences are presented simultaneously, typically using different modalities of stimuli, such as one auditory and one visual. This application allows simultaneous recording of the user's EEG signal, as well as other biosignals that can be transmitted via LSL.
