The site also offers the popular logic game called Sudoku. In this game you try to fill a puzzle grid so that every row, column, and 3 × 3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9. www.memorylossonline.com This site provides two memory tests (click on Memory Games), one for verbal memory and one for visual memory. The verbal quiz, which takes between 10 and 15 minutes, tests word memory, and the visual quiz, which takes about the same amount of time, tests picture memory. Each test has three parts, and at the end you’re told what your score means and how you compare to other people who have taken the test. www.gotofreegames.com Playing the age-old game Concentration is another terrific way to test memory and performance. This Web site provides a 24-picture Concentration grid and times your play to see how quickly you can come up with the 12 matches. www.jebikes.com/java/WhackAMole This online version of the arcade game Whack-a-Mole, in which moles poke their heads up quickly and you have to whack them before they duck back underground, requires continuous attention and speedy visual reaction time. It’s a way for your teen to assess sleepiness and possible microsleeps—and have fun at the same time.
