THE EXPLANATION

The task

Have you ever had to memorize a phone number or directions to a friend’s home? In this exercise, your client’s working memory, attention, and mental math skills will be challenged as your client must memorize numbers and operators in order to solve equations both effectively and correctly.

 

What It Trains

Using attention to detail, working memory, and mental math, your client must memorize the operations they are shown as well as the sequence of numbers to solve an equation. To do this, they will have to develop strategies to remember the order of operations, what the operators mean, and to correctly sequence the numbers that they are shown so that they can correctly apply the right operators. Calculation occurs through a network between the frontal, temporal, and parietal lobes while memory occurs in the hippocampus with connections between key brain regions.

Parameters

You can modify the number of series (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15 or 20), the number of operations (from 1 to 3), the difficulty of numbers (from 1 to 9, from 10 to 20 or from 20 to 100), order of appearance (operators then numbers or numbers then operators), memorization time (unlimited or from 4 to 10 seconds per item) and restitution time (unlimited or 120, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20 or 10 seconds).

Number of Unique Configurations

Over 9000 unique game configurations and significant data set depth.
