THE EXPLANATION

The task

Does your client have cabin fever? Help them learn the skills needed to plan a trip using this fun exercise that takes your client through some of the world’s most popular destinations while working on verbal and visual memory skills. In this exercise, your client must keep track of a travel itinerary by correctly pairing pictures of famous landmarks and their location on a map. 

 

What It Trains

In this exercise, your client must correctly pair images of landmarks with their corresponding locations in the correct order. The language areas of the brain in addition to the posterior parietal cortex, occipital lobe, and hippocampus are involved with the encoding and decoding of verbal and visual memory. Your client must also pay attention to the order of their tour, which involves the frontal lobe. By learning strategies to effectively retain and execute verbal and visual information, your client will engage key brain regions and their interwoven connections with one another in this fun exercise.
