Test your memory with our Vision and Eye Research Institute.

Take part in different types of memory tests including visual short-term memory and explore a whole range of memory tests from object to colour and location.

You’ll be able to see the results of memory tests immediately after you’ve completed the activity. Models of the brain will be used to show areas that mediate binding in visual short-term memory.

Memory binding is a cognitive process by which different features of an object (such as colour, shape and name) are linked together in our memory.

There's no need to book – just drop in.

There are lots of other exciting events happening during the Chelmsford Science Festival, which runs 12-18 October. Take a look at the full programme and book your free tickets today.
