  • Researchers can predict your video game aptitude by imaging your brain

    University of Illinois Beckman Institute director Art Kramer and his colleagues developed a new way to predict how well study subjects would do on a strategic video game. The new method can predict 55 to 68 percent of the variance in learning between individuals - before they even start to play the game.
