Brain Area Working
How To Play
In this game, you are invited to train your abilities in visual-spatial representations. There are two steps to this task: first, deduce the location of the observer on a map according to what he sees and, second, deduce what the observer sees according to his location on a map. It is not always easy to mentally perceive the accurate 3-D spatial representation of a landscape from a map, or of a monument from a plan.
Cognitive Function Exercised
The parietal lobe integrates sensory information from different modalities, particularly determining spatial sense and navigation. This enables regions of the parietal cortex to map objects perceived visually into body coordinate positions. The parietal lobe involves functions such as the ability to discriminate between sensory stimuli, the ability to locate and recognize parts of the body and spatial orientation.
Benefits to Daily Life
Location, distance, direction, and perspective are characteristics of spatial orientation that affect how we gather, process, and express information. In everyday life you apply these skills when you are driving, when you are in a new environment, or reading a map. If you are designing your own house you will need to draw a floor plan or diagram of the rooms in your home as if you were looking down into the home through a glass ceiling. These skills would be essential. You may also use these skills when playing sports or dancing with a partner. Doubles anyone?
