Can you do better than a songbird?

You are invited to participate in a scientific experiment that compares the auditory perceptions of humans & songbirds (zebra finches). You will be asked to complete an acoustic task that takes ca. 10 minutes.

Note that –like the zebra finches– you will get no explicit instruction, just some simple feedback on whether your answer is correct (smiley), incorrect (sad face), or not in time (question mark). After this you will enter the main phase of the experiment in which you are asked to simply continue responding to the sound sequences as you did before. Note that, in this final phase, you will only occasionally receive feedback.

Can you do as well, or even better than a songbird? 

The online experiment can be found here.
