THE EXPLANATION

The task

In this exercise, your client must focus on a configuration of objects on a grid. With a set memorization time, they must memorize the objects they have seen and where they are located on the grid. After the time is up, they must then place the objects they have seen exactly as they were displayed onto a blank grid.

 

What It Trains

Highly visual, this exercise targets your client’s ability to remember the objects they have seen and their location in space. Paying attention to the features of the objects presented and their location engages the hippocampus, frontal lobe, and both the ventral and visual processing pathways.

Parameters

You can modify the size of the grid (3×3, 4×4, 5×5, 6×6, 7×7, or 8×8), the number of pieces (5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 18, or 20), the number of shapes (1, 2, or 3), the number of colors (1, 2, or 3), the memorization time (unlimited, 90, 60, 45, or 30 seconds), the time limit (unlimited, 90, 60, 45, or 30 seconds), the number of tries (1, 2, or 3), and the presence or not of a distraction task (yes or no). Just one grid is presented for each series.
