Sea Hero Quest is a new multi-platform mobile game designed to help advance the understanding of spatial navigation in the brain, and the understanding of one of the first symptoms of dementia.
Researchers have engineered a new game that is designed to speed up the way that dementia research is being done.
The game lets players sail around the world in search of artifacts. These artifacts are in the form of memories.

Anyone can play.
Scientists intend to use the data generated from the game to gain insight into your spatial navigation abilities -- one of the first skills lost at the onset of dementia.
The initial goal is to gain a better understanding of healthy brains, and try to establish what is a 'normal' pattern of behavior.
