Mind games can help people think differently and make more informed decisions, according to a new study.
The research published Wednesday in the journal Current Biology showed that participants could learn how to improve their ability to think by using a game called Mind Meld.
The study, which involved a computer game called Stimela Mind Games, was led by researchers at Duke University.
It focused on two different types of brain games, the Mind Meister and Mind Melda, which are also known as the Mind Game and Mind Link games.
The Mind Meisters, which were designed by a team at Carnegie Mellon University, involve two participants working together in order to solve a mathematical problem, or game.
Participants can use their own hands to answer questions and are given rewards for completing tasks, which they can then use to play the game again.
The mind games use a computer to simulate a scenario and then give the participants the task of solving a mathematical equation, which then has to be solved by another participant.
In other words, the goal of the game is to understand how a particular equation fits into a known pattern of the universe.
To study the games, a team of researchers recruited two groups of participants: one group was given a Mind Melder game, and the other group was not.
Participants were also given Stimela games in which they were given instructions to solve math problems.
Participants were asked to play two games, one for themselves and one for a team.
The team games were presented for 20 minutes and were designed to last 30 minutes, with the goal being to complete the puzzle and get a reward for solving the puzzle.
Participant scores in each of the two games were recorded, and they were compared to their answers on the Mind Link game.
The results showed that the Mind Links participants scored higher on the math problems they solved than their non-participants.
The team then tested whether the results could be generalized to other types of games.
Participation in Mind Meiers was associated with higher IQ scores and lower IQ scores for non-players and for participants who played both Mind Meier and Mind Links games.
The study also showed that Mind Melers who played Mind Links had lower scores on a variety of cognitive tests, including IQ.
“These findings suggest that Mind Link and Mind Seld games are particularly useful for improving cognitive skills,” said study co-author Dr. Anupama Raghavan, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke.
“This work is an important first step toward understanding how brain games are useful for learning to make better decisions, such as in decision making in social interactions, and helping people make better informed decisions,” he said.
The findings are an important step toward better understanding how cognition is regulated by the brain, and how these changes might lead to better decisions.
The results were consistent with previous research showing that players who played a Mind Link or Mind Linked game were more likely to make more complex decisions, said study author Dr. Elizabeth T. Lee, who is an assistant professor of neuroscience at Duke and the study’s senior author.
“These results suggest that games may be particularly useful in helping people improve their decision-making abilities.”
