GamingMedia and the Elderly (GAME)

  • Project period: 2021 - 2025

Description

The project looks at gaming in those of middle-to older age, in particular how gaming could benefit the cognitive abilities of older people. Previous studies have found that retired people playing videos have increased attention, memory and problem solving abilities, provided that they enjoy the game. This project further investigates the interaction between age, cognitive abilities, cognitive aging, and video game perception and experience.
