A team of researchers has found that the game played as a decoder on an iPad is played for eight hours in a matter of eight months and is focused.
The team of researchers at Cambridge University has developed a brain training app that can increase the concentration of people from the daily interruptions in the connected world.
The team showed that the game app played on the iPad as a decoder listens to eight hours in a month and focuses on it.
A researcher from the Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute at the University of Cambridge said that the focus would be to activate the frontal-parietal network of the brain.
“We’ve all experienced coming home from work feeling that we’ve been busy all day, but unsure what we actually did,” said Professor Barbara Sahakian from the Department of Psychiatry.
For complex tasks, we need to focus on “flow” and focus on it, adding it to the study published in the journal Frontier in Behavioral Neuroscience.
To reach this conclusion, the researchers divided 75 healthy young people into three groups: one group decoder received, one control group gave Bingo at the same time, and another control group did not get any game.
At the beginning of the test and after four weeks all the 75 participants were tested.
The result is that people playing Decoder are better off playing bingo and those who played no game.
“The difference in performance was significant and meaningful as it was comparable to those effects seen using stimulants, such as methylphenidate, or nicotine,” said the team.
Decoding focuses attention on participants on “Trail Making Test” to ensure that the decoder focuses attention without decelerating the ability to focus and improve concentration.
Improve decoder performance on the commonly used neuropsychological test of meditation transfer.
Professor Sekiyan said. “In addition to healthy people, we hope that the game will be beneficial for patients who have impairments in attention, including those with ADHD or traumatic brain injury. We plan to start a study with traumatic brain injury patients this year,”
The game is now licensed by app developers peak. As part of the Peak Brain Training app on the Apple App Store, they released the game on Monday. Android version will arrive at the end of this year.
