A Zero-Sun Game

November 12, 2019

Imagine this: You’re running outside, electrodes on your head, a psychologist trailing behind you. Oh, wait—you can’t imagine that? Probably because it would never happen. But scientists do want to know what’s going on in the brain while you’re exercising outside. That’s why this lab is bringing the outdoors inside and video games to life.

In this episode, we talk to Rachel Hopman (postdoctoral research associate in the Center for Cognitive and Brain Health) and Ruiming Wang (graduate student of Game Science and Design).
