Brain Teasers: Spot the Difference

Dr. Pas­cale Mich­e­lon recently shared with our read­ers which brain areas and cog­ni­tive func­tions are engaged as we solve the type of brain teaser known as Spot the Dif­fer­ence, where we have to find the dif­fer­ences between two ver­sions of one image:

1) You have to iden­tify the objects that you see: this involves your occip­i­tal lobes (in red).brain neocortex

2) You have to ana­lyzed the spa­tial rela­tion­ships between the objects that you see: this involves your occip­i­tal and pari­etal lobes (in green).

3) You have to remem­ber what you see in one pic­ture and com­pare it to what you see in the other pic­ture, that is you have to use your short-term mem­ory: this involves your frontal (in blue) and pari­etal lobes.

4) You have to mark down the loca­tions where you see a dif­fer­ence: this involves mostly your frontal lobes (for the movement).

Ready! Set! Go!: How many dif­fer­ences can you spot, and which ones?
