Helsinki pursuing the possibility to become the future hotspot for Neurogaming has aroused interest internationally. In the first neurogaming event organized in Helsinki last Monday, the neurogaming expert Zack Lynch opened up the topic more for the Finnish audience.
The prestigious Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday about Helsinki Business Hub’s efforts to wake up different players in the Finnish gaming and science fields for Helsinki to become neurogaming pioneer in Europe: “Neurogaming can bring a whole new interface to gaming: games you can control with your mind. For the neuroscientists, collaboration with the gaming industry provides a wealth of interesting data about concentration. In the longer-term, it has the potential for new treatments where games can be used instead of drugs to alter the mental state of patients.”
