The pre-frontal cortex, which is responsible for executive functions, is the main brain area in this task. This term refers to a set of mental processes involved in goal-directed activity.

The skills found in Writing in the Stars may help individuals improve their ability to plan their day logically. In this exercise, only 6 of the nine words can be used. Many options exist, but only one placement will work for each word. This same strategy is utilized when planning out a schedule for the day. An individual has to consider different constraints (travel time, the duration a task would take to complete, etc.). Often, only one solution will work, just like in this exercise.
