THE EXPLANATION

The task

In this exercise, the aim is to determine if a 3-D geometrical figure  presented to the subject from various angles is in fact the same or different geometrical figure. This exercise is designed to strengthen your client’s mental imagery skills, and more importantly, their ability to mentally rotate objects which is used to recognize objects viewed from unusual angles.

 

What It Trains

The ability to effectively manipulate objects mentally allows us to make decisions as to what an object is, where to place an object in space so that it does not fall, and helps us create a plan for how to navigate our environment. This task aims to train your client’s visual mental imagery skills, specifically their mental rotation abilities. Indeed, your client must visualize elements in a pattern, identify the surface patterns of 3-D objects, create a mental image of them, visualize their rotations, and make comparisons in order to decide whether the objects are the same or different.

Parameters

You can modify the number of series (1, 2, 4, 5, or 10), the number of objects (2 or 3), the 3-D object presentation (simultaneous or deferred), the complexity of the object (easy, medium, or hard), the memorization time (unlimited, 30, 20, or 10 seconds), the time limit (unlimited, 30, 20, 10, or 5 seconds), and the reminder of objects (2 reminders, 1 reminder, or no reminder).
