  • 26. Summary Thoughts  Hype/hope usually drive new technologies (e.g. gene therapy) including those that ultimately prove effective.  For complex problems, magic bullets (e.g. drugs or cognitive training) are unlikely to be effective alone.  There is no short-cut to rigorous science – unbiased RCTs looking at effect size, generalization, durability are essential to demonstrate value.

  • 57. Enhancing learning and facilitating transfer to new tasks is possible with some video games: action-packed, fast paced games This holds in young adults – in older adults or patients, action games are ill-adapted Need adaptive training, video games or other experiences, that will enhance attentional control

Shawn Green Enhanced attentional control allows for faster learning of task statistics, and thus greater adaptability and broader transfer
  • 62. Summary • Broad transfer to perception, attention and cognition after action game play • Not all video games are created equal – for young adults and skills studied so far action packed video games have an edge BUT action video games too challenging for older adults or low vision patients… • Evaluating key game play components and how they may be best adapted to induce learning and transfer as a function of the population studied
