In Mind’s Eye, you are asked to remember one or more target images and determine whether a set of similar images presented contain the target images. The exercise starts with flows and visual sweeps, and then moves through shapes and scenes.
Here is how Mind’s Eye works:
- When you click START you will be presented with a set of moving dots, visual sweeps, shapes or scenes similar to the ones below. Let’s look at moving dots in an easy level.
- You will be presented with a set of moving dots. Remember the direction of the dots for this entire training session.
- You will then be presented with a set of three moving dots. Look for the one where the dots were moving in the same direction as the one you remembered.
- Respond by clicking/touching (in case of touchscreens) one of the options as you see below. That is, if the target image was presented as the first, second or third one. Or, it was not presented at all.
More useful information:
- In this exercise, you have a limited time to respond.
You can also try the step by step instructions by clicking the ‘i’ button at the bottom right corner of the exercise screen shown below.
Note: When you try an exercise in a new level, the instruction mode is on by default. The way you can tell whether you are in instruction mode or exercise mode is to note the orange-color banner on top of the exercise screen which looks like the one below. You can always click on the ‘i’ to toggle between instruction mode and exercise mode.
As you progress, the exercise will grow more challenging in the following ways:
- the images become more similar
- the type of image changes (moving dots, patterns, shapes, and scenes)
- you are required to remember more than one image at a time
Control buttons are found at the bottom right of the exercise screen. You can use these buttons to do the following:
- If at any time you wish to repeat the Instructions on a particular exercise, push the’ i’ button.
- If at any time you need to Exit an exercise, push the X button.
- If at any time you wish to Pause the exercise, push the II button.
- If you want to make the exercise Full screen for easier viewing, push Full screen button.
