Enhance useful field of view, speed of responsiveness, brain exerciser


Python and pygame cross platform program to exercise the brain with the intention of enhancing useful field of view, also known as speed of responsiveness.

This yields benefits in driving, motility, and even depressive symptoms, as described in research papers of randomized, double blind trials. Whether ufov exercise the brain to yield those benefits is unknown, since there are no research studies using it. The research is conducted with a commercial product that I have not seen or used. I used the description of what useful field of view is supposed to do to create this program for experimental purposes. I notice personal changes from using the program, but that is only anecdotal evidence.

I was especially struck by the research that found a significant decrease in dementia for those who used such a program to exercise their brain.

For a full description of the program, and links to some information about useful field of view, see the project web page.
