Tetris: The Anti-Nightmare Fuel

Playing Tetris shortly after traumatic experiences helps accident victims and war casualties ward off traumatic flashbacks, British researchers have found.

Sounds silly, but given how much of your brain Tetris can end up controlling - to the point of seeing it when you close your eyes - it's not that farfetched to me. A team of scientists at the Department of Psychiatry at Oxford University believes it could lead to new treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder and other trauma-related issues.

How they did it: 40 volunteers were shown "traumatic images of injury from a variety of sources" such as advertisements depicting the graphic dangers of drunk driving. After a 30 minute break, half the volunteers played Tetris for 10 minutes and the other half did nothing. The group that played Tetris experienced "significantly fewer flashbacks over the next week," writes The Telegraph.

The lead researcher believes Tetris helps in blocking the storage of painful memories, provided the game is played immediately after the traumatic event. It's because the brain, which is basically divided into sensory and analytical portions, has a limit on what it can do at the same time. So Tetris' analytical demands helps interfere with the way memories are retained.

The researchers note that there's about a six-hour window after trauma before the memory becomes permanent. So if you see something gruesome - like, I dunno, a knife through a wallhacker's head - chill out, find a computer, sit down and line up some blocks for about 10 minutes.

Re: Tetris: The Anti-Nightmare Fuel

I've only heard it used to describe people who cheat in FPS games like counter strike. Someone who can see/attack/move through a wall unfairly.

Re: Tetris: The Anti-Nightmare Fuel

That's interesting. Does the same thing happen with things you don't want to forget? Say I'm cramming for a test and I decide to play some Tetris to releave some stress.

Re: Tetris: The Anti-Nightmare Fuel

Gaming didn't help after the robbery though.. I did however do better in fighting games when I pictured my opponent being the robber. ;D

Re: Tetris: The Anti-Nightmare Fuel

When I was younger, I used to watch horror TV shows (unknown to my parents).

Now I'm completely unwavered by gruesome material on TV or movies, I guess you have to
get used to it when your very young, to truely get it out of your system...

But if I come across something truely horendous, I'll play some Tetris as soon as possible.

Re: Tetris: The Anti-Nightmare Fuel

i remember when i played Tetris Party on the wii, on beginner mode, with endless on.

It was practically impossible to lose. i played for so long, i found out that the clock maxed out at 99,99,99

I couldn't get the tetris music out of my head for weeks.

Re: Tetris: The Anti-Nightmare Fuel

If I play Tetris Attack or a clone long enough I see it when I lay down in bed at night. The same thing happens if I do Sudoku puzzles a lot. Also with Picross games. Puzzle games do that to me =P.

Re: Tetris: The Anti-Nightmare Fuel

Well, anything that requires concentration will probably make you forget alot of things....

Time for some confession to make this post worthwile and tell you a little about my self:
I wouldn't be affected by gruesome iimages... 'cuz I hangout in the abyssal pits(so to speak) of the Internet all the day. I have seen the worst possible sides of humanity floating by my eyes so many times that I ain't affected anymore in the sense that I turn away. It probably just made me more careful.

'Cuz you know,
Life is like an egg, if you crack it there will be no life; that is the conclusion I have come to.

But the only thing that truly affects me is insects... oh... gawd... oh... gawd!! It is some primal thing going on there, like India'n'snakes.



"There is something dark within me now"...

Come springtime there was food, But the widows all refused. And the poor man's black dogs came
To escort those who remained.
