Washington: Scientists have claimed that certain types of video games can help boost strategic thinking.Scientists from Queen Mary University of London and University College London (UCL) recruited 72 volunteers and measured their `cognitive flexibility` - described as a person`s ability to adapt and switch between tasks, and think about multiple ideas at a given time to solve problems.Two groups of volunteers were trained to play different versions of a real-time strategy game called StarCraft, a fast-paced game where players have to construct and organise armies to battle an enemy.A third of the group played a life simulation video game called The Sims, which does not require much memory or many tactics.
