Find Your Way!

THE EXPLANATION

The task

This exercise requires your client to reproduce an itinerary. A trail made up of stones will light up at random and the path it creates has to be memorized. This trail then has to be recalled in the same or in reverse order. To ease the memorization process, help may be given by showing the path of the stones.

 

What It Trains

The skills called upon in this exercise are constantly used in our daily lives. For example, when we retrace our steps through the house to look for our keys, we must remember exactly where we were and how we got there. For this task, the primary brain structure activated is the hippocampus. The hippocampus is located in the medial temporal lobe. It forms a part of the limbic system and plays a role in the storage of long-term memory, spatial navigation. It is highly involved in storing and processing spatial information from the environment. Without the hippocampus, people would not be able to remember where they have been and how to get where they would like to go. This exercise helps your client to learn strategies that may help improve their visual working memory and short-term memory skills.
