Lame Brain Game s

Several conferences on videogames, notably the ACM-sponsored ACE 2008 in Yokohama, have featured speakers championing the benefits of so-called "brain training" games. Now, however, an NPR story on how "Brain Training Games Won't Pump Up IQs" explains how a new study finds no research to support the rhetoric of boosters of such games. TIME Magazine has also covered the story and admitted that not very long ago it published what seemed to be scientific findings that supported the idea that the right kind of videogames could reduce the likelihood of dementia.
