In this exercise, the user must memorize and then recreate the trail of stones that will light up at random. This trail then has to be recalled in either the same or reverse order.
For this task, the main brain structure at work is the hippocampus. The hippocampus is located in the medial temporal lobe. It forms a part of the limbic system and plays a part in long-term memory and spatial navigation, more specifically, in storing and processing spatial information. Without a fully functional hippocampus, humans may not successfully remember where they have been and how to get where they are going.
The skills called upon in this exercise are constantly used in our daily lives. For example, retracing our steps through the house to look for our keys or remembering what an individual did throughout the day. Taxi drivers in cities like New York are good examples of people who have excellent spatial memory and navigation skills. They must learn a large number of places, and know the most direct routes between them.
