About the PoNG Center
The PoNG Center integrates neuroscience knowledge in the areas of motivation, learning, movement, and physiology with current and cutting edge sensor technology that permits players to use a greater range of responses including those not readily observable, such as electroencephalography (EEG) through the medium of video game interaction. We create integrative platforms, tools and best practices for developing and delivering games for education, therapeutic intervention, and cognitive improvement. Simultaneously, we will develop tools for capturing and analyzing the wealth of data created from gameplay, feeding it back into the game to enhance play as appropriate. By combining cognitive science, neuroscience, engineering, digital arts, and education we seek to create games that meet a wide range of goals including medical rehabilitation, behavioral intervention, learning across the lifespan, and encouraging social change.
