Brain Area Working
How To Play
This game is about basketballs and hoops. Sounds easy enough? It is deceptively challenging. You will need to follow a few rules in order to place the basketballs in the right hoops.
Cognitive Function Exercised
The area of the brain at play is the one that controls for executive functioning located in the pre-frontal cortex. This is a problem-solving type of exercise. You need to plan your action, strategize your next move and organize feedback information. This exercise also consists of mentally calculating the necessary moves while inhibiting incorrect ones.
Benefits to Daily Life
Executive functions are important for successful adaptation and performance in real-life situations. They allow people to initiate and complete tasks and to persevere in the face of challenges. Because the environment can be unpredictable, executive functions are vital to human ability to recognize the significance of unexpected situations and to make alternative plans quickly when unusual events arise and interfere with normal routines. In this way, executive function contributes to success in work and school and allows people to manage the stresses of daily life. Planning a group tour or a conference, managing a household with multiple children, organizing your finances involve executive functioning skills.
