Visual-Spatial > Spatial Reasoning

Points of View

In this exercise, the user will have to identify their location in space. The user must analyze and deduce the location of the observer on a map according to what they see and then deduce what the user sees according to the location on a map. 

Brain Areas Engaged 

Learn more about this exercise:

Spatial reasoning is the main cognitive skill targeted in this exercise, but the user will also need to use attention to detail and working memory to successfully place themselves within the picture.

The parietal lobe integrates sensory information from different modalities, particularly determining spatial sense and navigation. This enables regions of the parietal cortex to map objects perceived visually into body coordinate positions. The parietal lobe involves functions such as the ability to discriminate between sensory stimuli, the ability to locate and recognize parts of the body, and spatial orientation.

Location, distance, direction, and perspective are characteristics of spatial orientation that affect how we gather, process, and express information. In everyday life, the skills exercised in Points of View are engaged. We especially use these skills when we are attempting to locate ourselves on a map. To properly navigate we must take the 3D information and rely it on the 2D map.

You can modify:

  • The number of series (4, 6, 8, or 10)
  • The type of exercise (where you are in the picture, what you see, or both)
  • The number of figures presented (5, 7, or 9)
  • The color of figures (identical or different)
  • The number of points of view (2, 4, or 6)
  • The number of tries (1, 2, or 3)
  • The response time (unlimited, 30, 20, 10, or 5 seconds).
