Summary of "Assaying neural activity of children during video game play in public spaces: A Deep Learning Approach."

Understanding neural activity patterns in the developing brain remains one of the grand challenges in neuroscience. Developing neural networks are likely to be endowed with functionally important variability associated with the environmental context, age, gender, and other variables. Therefore, we conducted experiments with typically developing children in a stimulating museum setting and tested the feasibility of using deep learning techniques to help identify patterns of brain activity associated with different conditions.

Altering perception: the case of action video gaming.

The view that better perceptual skills can open the door to greater cognitive fitness calls for identifying interventions that enhance perception. We review here the impact of action video game play o...

Improving Action Video Games Abilities Increases the Phonological Decoding Speed and Phonological Short-Term Memory in Children with Developmental Dyslexia.

Learning to read is extremely difficult for about 10% of the children because they are affected by a heritable neurobiological disorder called developmental dyslexia (DD). The causal role of cognitive...

"It's like you are in the jungle": Using the draw-and-tell method to explore preschool children's play preferences and factors that shape their active play.

A child's preference for active or sedentary play is a key proximal indicator of a child's physical activity behaviour. There is a need to understand children's physical activity preferences in order ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Used with articles which include video files or clips, or for articles which are entirely video.

Theoretical construct used in applied mathematics to analyze certain situations in which there is an interplay between parties that may have similar, opposed, or mixed interests. In a typical game, decision-making "players," who each have their own goals, try to gain advantage over the other parties by anticipating each other's decisions; the game is finally resolved as a consequence of the players' decisions.

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).

A cytologic technique for measuring the functional capacity of stem cells by assaying their activity.

A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades. (McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed, v19, p223)
