Do you easily find your way around or are you the kind of person who cannot tell left from right? Both of these spatial skills depend on the brain’s ability to compute locations, ours and those of objects around us. Here is a fun brain game to sharpen your spatial skills. You will imagine yourself in a different location and see if you can tell what is on your left or right.
