The ArchiMemory eXPeriment

This is where you will participate to an experiment that will show you how to improve your memory by using your spatial cognition. Before you enter the experiment, a short introduction.

Introduction
History is paved with mnemonic devices that makes use of our spatial ability to remember all sort of information. Our sense of space has evolve for thousands of years to become part of what makes us human. This project is looking at how architecture influences this ability? What features will help to build meaningful virtual spaces that will enhance the way we learn and memorise information?

To explore these questions, ArchiMemory propose a simple memory task: remembering a sequence of random playing cards. To do so the participant will train his spatial memory by navigating a 3D Virtual Environment. Like in a video game.

You don’t need to know more for now, you will be guided step by step.

Before you start
By clicking the “participate” button down there, you will be automatically assign a cookie with a guest session. You have then two options:

  1. you are just curious and don’t bother entering any details of yours and will not coming back. Fair enough, just follow the steps.
  2. you want the full experience and are keen to help to gather evidence. Then, please, update your details and remember your login username and password. With those you will be able to sign in later on from any computer or browser and to add up data to your profile.

Some technical issues are slowing us down. Bare with us, subscribe to ArchiMemory by email or follow us on Twitter to be the first to participate to this Spatial Learning experiment.
