5 Brain Games For Speed Reading

5 Brain Games For Speed Reading

1. Memory Grid Game.

Readlax Memory Grid Game

How to Play.

Memorize the blue cells. After a few seconds, recall the blue cells. Time for the game is limited. Try to use a peripheral vision to see and remember cells.

What you train.

This game trains working memory and peripheral vision.

2. Memory Number Game.

How to Play.

Focus on the geometrical figure and try to see numbers with your peripheral vision and remember them. Enter numbers without spaces in the field and choose the figure which was shown before the numbers. 

What you train.

This game trains working memory, two hemispheres, and peripheral vision.

3. Letter Grid Game.

How to Play.

Focus on the grid center (green cell) and find letters with your peripheral vision without moving your eyes. Try to use peripheral vision in maximum. The letters must be specified in alphabetical order: 

"a", "b", "c", "d", "e", "f", "g", "h", "i", "j", "k", "l", "m", "n", "o", "p", "q", "r", "s", "t", "u", "v", "w", "x", "y".

What you train.

This game trains visual span and peripheral vision. It's a great exercise to increase "visual span" - the number of letters that can be recognized reliably without moving the eyes.

4. Bigram Game.

How to Play.

Focus on the grid center and find "bigram" (a combination of two letters) with your peripheral vision. Bigrams are used in most successful language models for word recognition.

What you train.

This game is an excellent exercise for word recognition training using peripheral vision. Rapid and effortless word recognition is the main component of speed reading. Parallel letter recognition is one more explanation of speed reading. It's the most widely accepted model of word recognition by psychologists today. In this model, all letters within a group are perceived simultaneously for word recognition.

5. Number Grid Game.

How to Play.

Focus on the grid center and find black numbers in ascending order, and red in descending order with your peripheral vision, without moving your eyes. Numbers from each color must be specified alternately - first "1 black", then "12 red", "2 black" - "11 red", "3 black" - "10 red", etc.

Tip: In the sum of the next pair of numbers (red and black) should always turn out to 13. For example, if you press "3 black" now, the next will be "10 red" (13 - 3 = 10).

What you train.

This game trains visual span, peripheral vision, and work of two hemispheres.
