Players’ Motivation and EEG Waves Patterns in a Serious Game Environment
This study investigated players’ motivation during serious game play. It is based on a theoretical model of motivation (John Keller’s ARCS model of motivation) and EEG measures. Statistical analysis showed a significant increase of motivation during the game. Moreover, results of power spectral analysis showed EEG waves patterns correlated with increase of motivation during different parts of serious game play.
