Executive Function > Reasoning


In this exercise, the user must place segments of colored squares onto a grid to match the presented figure. Every time the user places a segment the grid will follow a set of rules (W+W = B, B + B = W). 

Brain Areas Engaged 

Learn more about this exercise:

Executive functions are used to perform arithmetic calculations, reasoning, and planning, which stem from the prefrontal cortex. Visual-spatial functions are predominantly attributed to the right parietal lobe. There is abundant neurophysiological evidence that the prefrontal cortex plays an important role in visual working memory.

By practicing the skills in Modulo, individuals may improve their ability to reason and problem-solve to achieve a goal. The user will have to choose the relevant pieces of information needed to solve the problem and to recreate the figure knowing that intermediate superimpositions can be confusing. Just like in real life, sometimes we have to step back in order to step forward. 

You can modify:

  • The number of grids (1 to 5)
  • The size of the grid (4×4, 5×5, 6×6)
  • The number of colors (2 or 3)
  • The number of pieces (2 to 5)
  • The overlap of the pieces (small, medium, or large)
  • The time limit (unlimited, 2 min, 1 min, or 30 seconds)
