Entangled Figures

In this exercise, the user will see three entangled objects which make up a complex figure.  These three entangled graphical objects are then compared to a multiple choice of similar or different objects. The user must choose the one that is part of the entangled figure.

Brain Areas Engaged 

Learn more about this exercise:

The exercise trains your visual and spatial skills, your working memory, and your focused attention skills. The primary part of the brain involved in spatial memory is the hippocampus. Studies have shown that the hippocampus is vital to the operation of spatial memory. The frontal lobe is also involved. It helps people to organize, plan, pay attention, and make decisions.

This exercise trains the user’s visual and spatial skills and their working memory. The user must find the identifying characteristics of an object, store them in their working memory, and then access the relevant details into a whole figure using mental visualization. We use these skills when we are attempting to locate an object in a messy drawer or find a product in a store. 

You can modify:

  • The type of figure (figurative drawing, geometrical figure, amoeba, or all types)
  • The number of figures (2 or 3)
  • The appearance of figures (staggered, simultaneous, staggered with fade-out, or all types)
  • The theme of figures (unique or different)
  • The memorization time (unlimited, 30, 20, 10, or 5 seconds)
  • The time allowed to select the figures composing the entangled figure (unlimited, 60, 30, 20, 10, or 5 seconds).
