By Stacy Liberatore For Dailymail. It's something parents may be surprised to hear — video games can be beneficial for visually impaired children. A new study found that after playing eight hours of kid-friendly action games, children reported up to a 50 percent improvement in their eye sight. Experts found that training subjects to use their underused peripheral vision achieved gains in a short time, which also remained stable when tested a year later.
Scroll down for video. A new study found that after playing eight hours of kid-friendly, action games, children with poor eye sight reported their vision had improved by 50 percent.
Experts found subjects achieved visual gains in a short period of time that remained stable when tested a year later. The team recruited 24 low-vision children from the Tennessee and Oklahoma Schools for the Blind. While playing the game, students tracked multiple moving objects simultaneously while being on the lookout for another object that briefly appears and requires a response from the player.
Students were able to better perceive moving objects in the far periphery, they were able to better attend to visual crowding, such as Le Grain De Mil - B3 - Memoires a specific letter within a field of other letters, and they were much faster at finding objects in cluttered scenes. The study was conducted by teams from the University of Rochester and Vanderbilt University. The team pulled components from action video games AVGs that they believed would have the greatest impact on perception and added them to a custom game designed specifically for the study.
Those who are skilled at playing AVG can distribute and switch their attention over a wide area. At the same time, these users are aware of unexpected moving targets that may appear and are able to ignore irrelevant stimuli. Nyquist and the team hypothesized that training the students to pay more attention to their peripheral visual field could have quick results.
All games were played on a large projection screen to better involve visual periphery. Research suggests that certain games — particularity action games — can boost brain function. Some were even found to be of greater benefit than some brain-training exercises, which were specifically designed to boost a person's cognitive abilities.
The findings suggest that action video games in particular - games that feature quick moving targets, include large amounts of clutter, and that require the user to make rapid, accurate decisions - have particularly positive cognitive impacts.
They explained that action video games have been linked to improving attention skills, brain processing, and cognitive functions including low-level vision through high-level cognitive abilities. And the game researchers developed were designed with a dual-task component. The researchers created a training game with these specific task characteristics while eliminating other components of AVGs, such as the demand for speeded hand-eye coordination, and any violent or other non-child-friendly material.
The students were able to better perceive moving objects in the far periphery, they were able to better Living Loving Maid (Shes Just A Woman) - Great White - Great Zeppelin to visual crowding, such as identifying a specific letter within a field of other letters, and they were much faster at finding objects in cluttered scenes.
After a total of eight hours of training, groups who played with the commercially-available AVG and the custom dual-task game showed significant visual improvements. The students were able to better perceive moving objects motion perception in the far periphery, they were able to better attend to visual crowding, such as identifying a specific Dont Let Go - McColl & Tracey - Peripheral Vision within a field of other letters, and they were Dont Let Go - McColl & Tracey - Peripheral Vision faster at finding objects in cluttered scenes visual search -researchers compare this to finding a stapler on a Macdowell - 100 Piano Classics - 100 Piano Classics desk.
