App helps improve memory in people with schizophrenia

Researchers at the University of Cambridge have designed an app called Wizard, a game in which players choose their own character and a narrative ensues; the game rewards progress with additional activities to provide the user with a sense of progression. The study participants underwent a total of 8 hours of game play in a total of four weeks and were found to have improved episodic memory compared to equally matched controls. An interesting application of technology in the service of health. Can’t wait to try it.
