Fire up the Xbox, pop in a prescribed disc, and undergo autism treatment. Having autistic subjects postpone real-life social interaction and opt for a virtual game to enhance their social skills seems questionable. Yet, it’s happening at The Center for Brain Health at the University of Texas. Neuroscientists have collaborated with video game developers on this rather counterintuitive creation, a game that medical professionals are attributing to increased scores on psychologically based social tests and enhanced real-world interactions in players. Several other game developers have followed suit, creating Project Evo and the aptly named Social Clues. Those on the autism spectrum will soon be able to circumvent the pills with nasty side effects and pick up fun, immersive games from their local pharmacy.
