Play tetris to improve intelligence

The game of tetris increases intelligence and reduces stress

If I tell you about a game electronic based on gradually accommodating geometric figures that are falling on the screen, and ordering them in the best possible way to form an even wall, surely you will immediately grasp that I mean the Tetris, a game that we may have all enjoyed during our childhood and adolescence, or even continue to enjoy.

And boy do we have reason to continue doing so, since it has been confirmed through medical research that play tetris better intelligence, developing different mental qualities and functioning as an excellent anti stress method

The research was carried out by the psychologist Richard Hier, from the University of California, on a population of students with little experience in this type of game, but who, after a continuous period of 3 weeks of play tetris, demonstrated greater brain and memory efficiency.

Furthermore, this study makes it possible to elucidate the benefits of tetris regarding the development of the capacity for coordination, analysis and thinking, as well as multisensory control; Not to mention the important function of recreation and release of endorphins that this typical game produces, thus making it a simple and practical method to de-stress.
