Brain Area Working
How To Play
The task consists of a double ordering task. At the simplest level, you are presented with letters or words that you must put in alphabetical order. At the more complex level, the task involves alternating between words and numbers or, between two words from different categories. The difficulty and the interest lie in the skipping from one to another in a limited time.
Cognitive Function Exercised
The brain area exercised in this game is the pre-frontal cortex. This exercise requires mental flexibility, inhibition, and sequencing abilities. In addition, this task requires visual-conceptual and visual-motor tracking. It also entails motor speed and attention functions. This game requires problem-solving skills that call on the brain's executive functions. You must define a strategy to reach a desired outcome, calculate the right moves to reach the solution in the shortest possible time, and remember the rules of the exercise.
Benefits to Daily Life
Are you a multi-tasker? If so, you are able to shift your attention from one task to another without losing track of information. You are able to focus and sustain your attention while organizing and prioritizing information. These abilities are found in air traffic controllers, culinary staff at a busy restaurant and even chess players. In everyday life, you may use your executive functions when you are reorganizing your financial files or preparing the house for the holidays by simultaneously cooking and cleaning when everything has to be ready at a different time!
