Brain Area Working
How To Play
This exercise consists of sorting out even and odd numbers in ascending or descending order. The numbers are presented in a table of 25 boxes but, to make things easier, you can change the size of the grid.
Cognitive Function Exercised
This exercise mainly involves executive functioning skills. It also requires both visual scanning, spatial exploration of the grid and a high degree of concentration. Memory also plays a role here as we utilize mental strategies that involve the storage and retrieval of information when recalling the location on the grid of numbers scanned earlier. Finally, you will also use your numerical processing skills as you order the numbers in ascending or descending sequence.
Benefits to Daily Life
We use our executive function skills every day. For example, when we meaningfully integrate past knowledge into a group discussion, when we tell a story (verbally or in writing) and communicate details in an organized, sequential manner. Executive functions are also involved in initiating activities or tasks and generating ideas independently. To the extent this game relies on memory skills, practice with it may improve your ability to remember a phone number while dialing.
