Uncovering the Relationship Between Genetics and Memory
Video Apr 07, 2017
Researchers at the Wyss Institute and the Personal Genome Project are using Lumosity games to evaluate memory functions and response times. The genomes of high performers will be sequenced, with the goal of uncovering the relationship between genetics, memory, attention, and reaction speed.
This video featuring George Church, Core Faculty of the Wyss Institute and Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, illustrates how engaging the games are as he becomes so engrossed in the them that he imagines them occurring in real life.
