A recent article posted to National Public Radio and featured on Clay Siegall’s WordPress blog discusses how researchers have developed a new game that forces players to concentrate on two separate, but relevant occurrences during gameplay. The strategy is forcing the mind to focus on two different tasks at the same time, which is supposed to increase concentration. In addition to the game, they have also realized that low voltage electric shock to the prefrontal cortex can also help to stimulate concentration. These developments are still in the testing phase, but the possibility of being able to control concentration is a ray of hope for many who have issues in this area.
