“Exergames” May Provide Cognitive Benefit for Older Adults
New Findings Reported in American Journal of Preventive Medicine
San Diego, CA, January 17, 2012 – Virtual reality-enhanced exercise, or “exergames,” combining physical exercise with computer-simulated environments and interactive videogame features, can yield a greater cognitive benefit for older adults than traditional exercise alone, according to a new study published in the February issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
I’ve contacted the journal to find out who broke the embargo, and whether there will be sanctions. In the meantime, the first story I can find about the study was in the Daily Mail.
