Watching 3D films can help improve IQ and brain power
TVBEurope.com reports that Neuroscientist Patrick Fagan, associate lecturer at Goldsmiths, and Professor Brendan Walker of Thrill Laboratory have found that watching films in 3D sharpens the brain for a protracted period after the movie has been watched and has a short-term ‘brain training’ effect.
The research, in which over 100 people were exposed to 3D and standard format films at Vue’s London Piccadilly cinema found that participants experienced a 23 per cent increase in cognitive processing. Reaction times were improved by 11 per cent. While temporary, watching a film in 3D gives the brain a ‘boost’ that can last up to 20 minutes after viewing, according to findings from the experiment.
