THE EXPLANATION

The task

Has your client ever told you they wanted to climb the Eiffel Tower or visit the Colosseum? In this exercise, your client must memorize travel itineraries in one or several cities by correctly pairing landmarks with their location on a grid. Your client must develop strategies to remember what a landmark looks like as well as pair it with a number and letter location on a grid.

 

What It Trains

In this exercise, your client will train their working memory, object identification, and spatial orientation skills. These skills are used in everyday life, such as when we are walking or driving to a location and we are using signs or maps to guide us. These skills are also used when we are in a store, and we are trying to find product aisles or the cash register to check out. Verbal and visual memory engages both hemispheres of the brain and key brain regions, such as the hippocampus.

Parameters

A very high degree of control is available. The parameters that can be selected are the number of cities (1, 2, 3, or 4), the choice of cities (manual or random), the number of stops (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8), the memorization time per stop (unlimited, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, or 3 seconds), the information recall time (unlimited, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, or 3 seconds) and the presence or not of a distraction task.
