Researchers to examine video games and health
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has announced it will give a dozen research teams up to $200,000 each for projects that will measure the effects of playing video games on the young and old. For example, researchers at Cornell University will study how a mobile phone game rewarding healthy eating and exercise will influence children's behavior, and researchers at the University of Florida will monitor how playing Playstation 2's "Crazy Taxi" affects perception in the elderly.
