Parietal Lobe: Interprets sensations, such as touch, pressure, pain, heat, and cold. Helps with the understanding of objects, shapes, and space

Common symptoms: Include problems with perception, judging distances and three-dimensional spaces

Occipital Lobe - Visual Functions: Coordination of eye movements, perception, image recognition, association, visual memory

Common symptoms: Include problems with reading, recognizing faces, and distinguishing shapes

Temporal Lobe - Association Area: Short term memory, equilibrium, emotion

Hippocampus: Learning new skills, forming new memories, special memory (i.e. navigating around and finding where you placed objects)

Common symptoms: Effects of dementia usually originate here and spread to the rest of the brain. Unusually pronounced lapses in memory, and loss of memory (most commonly short-term memory first)

Cerebellum: Plays a major role in balance, voluntary motor skills, coordination & speech

dementia brain functions

Visual Stimulation

Our colourful stimulating images are processed in the area of the brain dedicated to vision and image understanding

Structured Speech

The conversations triggered by our images and questions mobilise the areas of the brain needed for structured speech


The written text in our questions triggers the sensory area responsible for reading


Our question-and-answer format call for reasoning and decision making

Emotional Expression

Emotion is a powerful tool, laughter too is often a feature of playing our games

Voluntary Movement

The simple act of raising your hand and touching the correct area of the screen calls for voluntary muscle use, the motor function


Recalling past experiences maintains confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of self. Sharing precious memories improves communication which makes it easier to connect with others
