Neuroscape’s work is a great example of out of the box thinking that tests our assumptions. We hear a lot about how video games are bad for us. Yes, hours of sitting in front of a television without moving is unhealthy, but these researchers have challenged the assumptions many people have about video games to create something that could help a lot of people.
What other innovations or insights could we be missing because of what we assume? How can good research practices help change people’s minds for the better? These are important questions to ask together as we use technology to improve our lives!
