    Researchers at the University of Cambridge believe that a computer based brain training game could improve the lives of people with schizophrenia. brain.jpg

    Testing the game on a number of patients, they said that after four weeks of playing the game their memory and learning improved, reports the BBC.

    Prof Barbara Sahakian, from the department of psychiatry at the University of Cambridge and who researched the impact of the game, said patients who played it made significantly fewer errors in tests afterwards on their memory and brain functioning.

    “Because the game is interesting, even those patients with a general lack of motivation are spurred on to continue the training.”

    Researchers say that these memory games must be used in conjunction with medication and other psychological treatments, but they are hopeful it will help people diagnosed with schizophrenia to continue studying.
