In this exercise, the user must memorize travel itineraries in one or several cities by correctly pairing landmarks with their location on a grid. the user must develop strategies to remember what a landmark looks like as well as pair it with a number and letter location on a grid.
The exercise challenges your visual-spatial skills and your visual memory. The primary areas of the brain exercised in this exercise are the right parietal cortex and the right temporal cortex. Visual-spatial skills allow us to visually perceive objects and the spatial relationships among them. Spatial memory can be considered a subcategory of visual memory because it relies on a cognitive or mental map whereby an individual can acquire, code, store, recall, and decode information about the relative locations and characteristics in one’s spatial environment.
Good visual-spatial skills are needed to orient yourself in a neighborhood, to retrace your steps through a crowd, to remember landmarks, and also to be able to recognize that you are in an unfamiliar environment. Individuals may use the same skills in American in Paris when they go to a large parking lot and have to remember where they parked their car, or when they are traveling and they have to remember the location of their hotel.
