Words, Where are You?

THE EXPLANATION

The task

In this exercise, your client must remember not only the words they see on a grid, but the exact location of the words they have seen.

 

What It Trains

In everyday life we combine verbal memory with spatial memory in situations where we have to navigate an aisle in the grocery store to purchase a product, look at a map and find a location of interest, or retain the key details of a movie plot. Our left hemisphere has distinct language areas responsible for language production and comprehension. The hippocampus is involved in spatial memory, and has connections to brain regions responsible for word recognition. Your client must use strategies to assign meaning to words in order to recall them while creating spatial relationships between the words that they have seen to remember their location. 

Parameters

You can modify the type of word list (words of the same category or words without connections), the number of words (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10), the size of the grid (2×2, 3×2, 3×3, 3×4, 4×4, 4×5, or 5×5), the modalities of the words presentation (one after another, at the same time, or one by one), the memorization time per word (unlimited, 6, or 4 seconds), and the type of help (squares and words, squares selected, words selected, or no selection). The response time in the recall stage is unlimited.
