Face Memory Test

The Science and Nature: Human Body and Mind portion of the BBC's website, includes a short demonstration on remembering human faces. While the primary intent behind the activity involves how the lack of sleep influences memory, the Face Memory Test would probably fit better in a Memory Unit rather than the States of Consciousness section of the class.

There are three parts to the activity each separated by a five minute break where students are shown a variety of faces and then later tested on which they can recognize. It should take between 15 to 18 minutes to complete the full activity.
