This is the brain ability to identify visual information. Recognition is the cognitive ability that makes it possible for an individual to extract known information, and to combine it with the new information. This is important because it makes it possible to perform tasks more efficiently and use fresh approaches to find new solutions faster. Recognition is a critical skill in developing a comprehensive reading flow.
The skill of recognition incorporates various visual processing skills.
- Open memory (to remember without sequence)
- Serial or sequential memory (remember in order)
- Key-word memory (use a clue to remember words)
How can we improve recognition? All cognitive abilities, including recognition, can be trained and improved. We make it possible to train specific cognitive areas like visual memory, perceptual accuracy, visual accuracy and word-recognition with the help of Eye-Brain-Gym, our professionally developed system.
We use the scientific knowledge of brain plasticity as the basis to train and improve recognition, perceptual, visual processing and cognitive skills. The neural networks in the brain grow stronger and more efficient with continual exercises. This is the reason constant training helps developing the brain structures that relate to recognition.
Eye-Brain-Gym exercises where Recognition is developed
Repeater is a very challenging exercise. You will have to quickly view the objects, numbers or letters, and identify the one that repeats.
CountMe is an exercise that helps to improve various ocular-motor skills as well as open memory. You will be challenged to remember how many times the example is flashed rhythmic across the screen from left to right. Targeted difficulty levels will challenge your brain constantly so that you can grow and advance in your visual and cognitive processing abilities using shapes, images, numbers, letters and combinations.
BlockFlash and BlockMatch will challenge and develop your visual short term memory in a variety of ways. Identify the object and remember where it was displayed within the given time-frame. You will be challenged to distinguish differences/ or similarities among forms whilst improving the duration of fixation and recognition span.
JumbleMatch assists you in developing visual discrimination between sizes, patterns, words and word shapes, classification of items, connections between names and formulae etc. in a fun and interactive way.
Object Memory is a fun way to practise visual discrimination. Visual discrimination is the ability to recognize details in visual images. It allows students to identify and recognize the likeness and differences of shapes/forms, colours and position of objects, people, and printed materials. In Object Memory, we have to use visual memory to differentiate between what was and what was not displayed in the first picture.
FrameFlash is geared towards improving your span of recognition as well as the duration of fixation. These exercises develop how fast and how much you see in a fun way. Foundational in developing visual analysis and visual discrimination. Numbers, letters and combinations must be seen at high-speed intervals and remembered in sequence.
MemoryBlocks is one of the most challenging exercises in EyeBrainGym (a registered trademark of M3line). This exercise will give you the challenge to remember 4 – 12 pictures in their exact positions within the timeframe given. Your sequential memory skills will be stretched and developed like never before.
FindMyFriend is the fun game of remembering where the same image is hiding. Turn the blocks and remember where the image was displayed.
Put in Order helps you to establish neural pathways to the long term memory bank. You will be expected to remember and place random sentences, from the story you have read, in the correct order.
WordFlash is part of a detailed sequence of exercises within EyeBrainGym (a registered trademark of M3line) built to develop Key-word memory. This is the ability to remember visual details in the correct sequence. This is essential for spelling and reading, where you need to remember the sequence of letters in order to spell the word correctly.
WordBuild is an exercise focussed on developing spelling through visual memory. You have to build a key-word from the passage you read through ordering the letters in the correct sequence.
SentenceBuild is an exercise focussed on developing language and sentence building through visual memory. You have to build a sentence by ordering the words in the correct sequence.
Summary will challenge you to use key-words within the passage to create your own summary by putting the word into 3-5 sentences.
