Software That Can Turn Back The Clock On Human Cognition
Scientists have crafted a game geared towards people 50 years of age or older that can train the brain to process information like it’s three years younger than it really is. The game originally dubbed “Road Tour” and later renamed “Double Decision” is designed to help focus and enhance memory and concentration while helping the mind block out unwanted distractions.
One year after engaging in just 10 hours of gaming, a study of 700 middle aged participants revealed brain behavior that was enhanced rather than deteriorated and on average at a level 3 years younger than participant age. Some aspects of the participants cognition was even higher. One test revealed participants cognitive speed was an incredible 7 years younger.
Experts believe that just ten hours of gaming can effect cognitive performance for well over a year. Professor Fred Wolinsky appears to have great faith in the game’s ability to help the elderly stay sharp, stating:
We know that this can stop the decline and actually restore cognitive processing speed to some people. So, if we know that, shouldn’t we be helping people? It’s fairly easy and older folks can go get the game and play it.
