How does your brain behave when you play video games?
Games are more popular than ever before - gamers are even making a living playing video games. But what does it take to become a successful eSports athlete? In this episode, the Arludo team perform science experiments with athletes and games to learn about brain alpha waves and explore what our brains are doing when we play VR games like Beat Saber.
The hosts design an experiment and put it through the test through the Arludo app, Reaction Packed.
Join scientists on a fun-filled scientific exploration of what's happening in your brain while gaming!
