‘Tetris’ May help PTSD Sufferers

Posted by TurtleGirl On April - 30 - 2012

According to the website ‘Counselheal‘, playing the popular tile-matching puzzle game ‘Tetris’ may help Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. According to the research, concentrating on engaging on visual-spatial tasks, such as interacting with video games, may notably reduce the recurrence of flashbacks of which the sufferer will experience.

Lead researcher Emily Holmes, a professor at Oxford and colleagues hypothesize that the visual-spatial demands of Tetris disrupt the formation of the mental imagery involved in flashbacks.The latest experiment conducted by the team was to ask subjects to watch a disturbing film with sufficient simulation of real trauma and then they were asked to complete three tasks, which involved; answering trivia, playing Tetris or engaging in nothing in particular. Several weeks later, the subjects who had played Tetris reported experiencing far fewer flashbacks of the film than the other subjects had experienced. It certainly makes an interesting debate into whether video games can help in other areas of mental health problems. What do you think?
