Serious Game for the Evaluation of Cognitive Function of Kids
This paper describes the serious game contents for the evaluation of cognitive function for kids. The game contents were designed for measuring and enhancing the cognitive function of the kids (ages 5–7). We clustered the measurable cognitive functions as auditory attention, visual attention, attention shift, and impulse control. This study is based on the advisory of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, Seoul National University College of Medicine. In impulse control task, we applied the vision based head tracking technology. This study is meaningful on the point view that we can evaluate and enhance the cognitive function of kids who are familiar with the computer environments.
