More on the benefits of playing Brain Training Games…

with one comment

In November, I wrote about the benefits playing games to treat depression and improve cognitive functions in: Brain Training Games. So, when I saw this article in the Guardian today I felt a need to add it.

There are also studies on how games work on our minds and our cognitive capabilities, and a lot of science suggests you can use games to treat depression, anxiety and attention-deficit disorder. Making games that are both fun and serve a social purpose isn’t easy – a lot of innovation will be required – but gaming will become increasingly integrated into society.
