The main screen stats gives you an overview of the alerts that you have completed, your response rate and the time that you typically take to respond to an alert.
Alerts completed is the total number of alerts that you have received so far and responded to. However, this excludes times when you have completed the app without receiving an alert.
Response rate indicates how many alterts you have received and respinded to. You should try to keep this number high, because a low number means that you’ve missed many of your moo-Q alerts! If you do not respond to an alert and receive another one, you will only be able to respond to the most recent alert.
Typical response time is how much time it takes you on average to respond to an alert. One or two minutes are an excellent average response times.
Complete a minimum of 5 alerts, and you can unlock your moo-Q chart that shows your mood & cognitive performance in terms of:
Positive affect refers to experiencing positive emotions. When you are high on positive affect, you feel enthusiastic, energetic, confident, active and alert.

Short-term memory is a limited storage capacity in your brain that holds information for 20 to 30 seconds. The information is then either forgotten or passed on to your long-term memory stores, where it may remain indefinitely.
Processing speed is a measure of your cognitive efficiency. It involves the ability to automatically perform relatively easy tasks – it’s quite similar to the horsepower of a car, just for the brain!
Working memory holds and processes information that you already hold in your short-term memory and new information input. In other words, it’s the ability to continuously do mental operations: specifially, the ability to be working your memory.
