Brain Area Working
How To Play
In this exercise you will discover if the 3-D geometrical figures presented to you from various angles are in fact the same, or a mirror image, of the object. The exercise is designed to strengthen your powers of visual mental imagery, and more particularly, mental rotation, which we use to recognize objects seen from unusual angles.
Cognitive Function Exercised
Mental rotation is the ability to rotate mental representations of two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects. Mental rotation usually takes place in the right cerebral hemisphere, in the areas where perception also occurs. It is associated with the rate of spatial processing and intelligence.
Benefits to Daily Life
Mental imagery is a skill we use daily to mentally create pictures, sounds, smells, and feelings. By creating a mental image, we are able to feel and understand something, even though what we are creating is not physically there. Mental images are specific to each of us, because they are linked to our personal experiences.
There are various types of mental imagery such as visual, auditory, tactile, motor imagery, and finally olfactory mental imagery. We regularly use mental imagery in our everyday life. It plays an active part in our thoughts, in our dreams, in how we resolve problems such as mental calculations, in anticipating events as in a game of chess, in memorization of itineraries, in understanding a verbal description, in reasoning and recognizing objects presented at odd angles.
