## Brain exercise: Frontal and Parietal Lobes

By: Alvaro Fernandez

Let’s now exercise our Frontal Lobes (that deal with working attention, among other things), and Parietal Lobes (visual interpretation). (Basic brain anatomy here)

Quick!, count the number of times the number “7” appears below. Then, count the total of both “1”s and “2”s, trying to add the total number of both as you see either (this is, don’t just count all the “1”s, and then the “2”s)

sevens are thirtysix of them and ones-twos are twentytwo of them. looking forward to seeing on Friday.

counted thirty-five sevens and twenty-one ones/twos…lets see what happens on friday

I agree with senia. There are 36 – 7’s and 22 1-2’s.

I found 36 7’s, 4 1’s, and 18 2’s.

36 7’s and 23 1’s & 2’s…

7’s=36

1’s & 2’s=23

I found 36 7’s and 23 1’s & 2’s.

27 “7’s”

4 “1s”

17 “2s”

Well, first, congratulations to everyone who has tried, since this type of exercise has been used by the military to improve attention.

There are

– 36 7s

– 23 1s and 2s combined (4 1s, 19 2s)

If you want more practice, there are a few other digits out there 🙂
