Around the World in 80 Trips
In this exercise the subject embarks on a splendid tour through the most beautiful regions on earth. The exercise consists of memorizing the itineraries of tours that may be selected from a list of destinations. The patient must keep in mind the names of the places he visits, the images associated with those places, and the order of the landmarks visited. He has to recall those elements on a grid afterwards.
What it trains
This task trains the patient’s visual and spatial memory pertaining to environmental information. He has to visualize pictures and written names (visual information), locate the pictures in space (spatial information) and then build a spatial relationship among the pictures. He will thus train his visual and spatial orientation and his perception skills. These are the skills that enable us to mentally manipulate and rotate information in space by taking different perspectives.
A predefined set of levels has been specially selected to ensure an easy start and grant a regular progression.
