Freeze Frame trains the brain to maintain a “relaxed and ready” state of alertness over increasingly longer delay periods.
In the exercise, the brain is required to discriminate between target images and distractor images. When a distractor is displayed—something that is not the target—press the right arrow key or click the "No >" icon. When the target image is shown, “freeze.” Do not press the arrow key, then wait for the next image to appear. As more correct answers are given, the exercise gets more challenging as the target image appears less frequently.
This iteration of Freeze Frame is more accurate than our previous version, but it does take longer to complete. Below is a table that shows a breakdown of how many images will be shown in a given stage of Freeze Frame.
|Stage||Turns||Images per turn||Total number of images|
If at least 80% of the answers given in a turn were correct, then the frequency in which the target image appears will decrease. If less than 80% of the answers given in a turn were correct, then the frequency in which the target image appears will increase. In short, the more answers you get right, the less likely the target image will appear, which forces you to concentrate for longer periods of time.
