It’s very popular to have games on your smartphone or tablet, and new research shows one is more than just entertaining. According to The Daily Mail,
University of Washington scientists were specifically looking at a piece of technology called Project EVO, which is a game played on a tablet that is designed to improve neurological performance. Study participants with later-life depression who played the game five times a week for 20 minutes show evidence of improved mood and attention capability. Study senior author Patricia Arean says the game is not directly designed to treat the symptoms of depression, but it’s thought to ease the symptoms by improving cognitive function.
That’s great news!
