Neuroscientists Rely On Gamers To Further Brain Research
A group of researches at MIT have developed a game to map out neural pathways in the human brain.
Imagine if every time you kicked back to relax and play some video games, you were also helping scientists get closer to solving complex medical issues. The implications could be quite powerful, as it is estimated that Earth’s population spends approximately 3 billion per week playing computer games. Harnessing even a fraction of this work towards scientific research would have the potential to lead to a wealth of discovery.
