Brain Area Working
How To Play
This exercise requires you to reproduce an itinerary. A trail made up of stones will light up at random and you must memorize the path it creates. If you manage to find your way, no maze will ever hold secrets from you again!
Cognitive Function Exercised
For this task, the main brain structure at work is the hippocampus. The hippocampus is located in the medial temporal lobe. It forms a part of the limbic system and plays a part in long-term memory and spatial navigation, more specifically, in storing and processing spatial information. Without a fully functional hippocampus, humans may not successfully remember where they have been and how to get where they are going.
Benefits to Daily Life
The skills called upon in this exercise are constantly used in our daily lives. For example, finding shortcuts and new routes between familiar places, retracing our steps through the house to look for our keys or going through a parking lot because you can't remember where you parked your car. Taxi drivers in cosmopolitan cities like New York are a good example of people who have excellent spatial memory and navigation skills. They must learn a large number of places, and know the most direct routes between them. Are you ready for this challenge?
