    Default NEUROLOGICAL SKILLS TEST

    Someone sent this to me in an email, so I thought that I would share it with you all. I got a 19 out of 20. What do you score? http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbo...ge/senses.swf?

    Interesting, Aaron, but I'd challenge the note question.

    Notes aren't higher or lower than each other - they're simply arbitrary names given to the tones in a scale. Pitches are measured in Mhz and are higher and lower. The two notes played are both C, an octave apart. But the pitch of the final C is higher than the pitch of the lower C.

    The question asked "which note is higher?" Since a high C is higher in pitch than a low C, the question is misleading. The answer they sought was the two notes were the same - which they were - they were both C's. But the second note was higher in pitch. That question should definitely be jettisoned from the test.

    Otherwise fun - thanks!

    I haven't finished it yet. I saw it late and my network bogged halfway through... My score was pretty poor, though... I'll blame it on being tired.
