Studies of Sudoku have taken it through the looking glass. Who’s interested?
Plenty of people!
What intrigues researchers are the spatial aptitudes involved, and the transferability to real life tasks.
Mirror Readuku plays in the usual way. You don’t even have to write the numbers backwards – though it may increase your speed you if you do. The point is to accomplish a familiar task of numeric logic, and engage regions of the brain specifically associated with mental rotation. Quickly.
