This exercise helps strengthen visual memory, spatial memory and visual concentration. Visual memory is a part of memory preserving some characteristics of our senses pertaining to visual experience. We are able to place in memory information that resembles objects, places, animals or people in sort of a mental image. Spatial memory can be considered a subcategory of visual memory because it relies on a cognitive map.

Remembering city landmarks, recalling the logos on grocery products or bringing to mind the shapes of various traffic signs all entail use of this function.
