Landmarks provide information about your location and the direction you are headed in. To use landmark information successfully you need to create a mental map of a scene and remember the relative locations of important objects. You must also be able to mentally manipulate this mental map so that you will not get lost if you enter the scene from a different direction.

In Mental Map, you have to remember the relative location of objects in a grid and then reconstruct the grid from memory after it has been rotated, flipped, or translated (moved up, down, right, or left).

As you move through the exercise, it gets harder in these ways:

  1. The grid movements become more complex
  2. More objects are presented in the grid
  3. More variations of object orientation within the grid are added
  4. Different object sets are used.
