In this exercise, the user must memorize numbers and operators to solve the math question.
This exercise primarily engages the prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal area houses the neural circuitry which is where concentration and the storage of information in the mental sketch pad of working memory occurs. While the user is storing the information they must complete mental calculations. Arithmetic calculations stem from your prefrontal cortex and occur in a network between the frontal, temporal, and parietal lobes.
Ready, Steady, Count! works on both concentration skills and mental mathematical calculations. We use these skills when we are calculating the price of an item on sale at the store, working on balancing bank accounts, or calculating a tip at a restaurant. When an individual has strong mental mathematical skills they may experience a decrease in stress when shopping, because they can quickly mentally calculate the cost and continue the task at hand.
