The task

This exercise consists of reading a 10-line story and memorizing the order in which all the verbs appear. If your client is attentive enough and understands the story, it is easy to remember the logical order of the verbs (as verbs imply action). Then, all the verbs are listed at random and your client must place them in the correct order, as they were found in the text.


What It Trains

The left tempo-parietal region is the main area at play in this game. Your client must read the story, comprehend the story, and understand the meaning of the words presented to them. Next, the connections between the language areas of the brain and the hippocampus are active as your client must recall the order of the words they are tasked to memorize. To effectively complete this exercise, your client must develop strategies to comprehend the text, understand the meaning of the words they must memorize, and assign meaning to the words to assist with organization within the text.


You can modify the number of stories (from 1 to 10), the number of verbs (6, 8 or 10), the number of attempts (1 or 2), the presentation mode for each attempt (Complete, Progressive, or One by one), and the time for memorization (Long, Normal, Short, or Unlimited).
