Brain Areas Engaged 
how ancient writing engages the brain.

Learn more about this exercise:

The front of the brain behind the forehead is the frontal lobe. The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that helps people to organize, plan, pay attention, and make decisions. In addition to visual memory, this exercise stimulates attention, which is the cognitive process of selectively concentrating on one aspect of the environment while ignoring other things. Further, this task will stimulate concentration and visual analysis of the shapes of characters.

This exercise primarily stimulates the user’s visual attention and concentration skills. They must pinpoint relevant information and differences between stimuli and visually scan for pertinent details. We use these same skills when comparing lists of items, such as an inventory list or comparing a recipe list to a grocery store shopping list.

You can modify:

  • The number of sequenced series (3, 6, 9, 10, or 15)
  • The number of characters (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10)
  • The type of alphabet (Egyptian, Thai, Runes, Mayan, Japanese, or Indian)
  • The type of presentation (2 lines, 2 staggered lines, lines, and columns, or all 3 modes)
  • The response time (unlimited, 60, 30, 20, or 10 seconds).
