Hi, my name is Alan D.A. Mattiassi and I’m a psychologist. After receiving my PhD I immediately started working on games. Early on, I found that games can be used to study behaviors, minds and brains. At the same time, nothing challenges our cognitive limits as games do. “Brains for Games” is the name of my project in which I try to understand how players play and how this can be exploited to better understand our brains.
This virtual place is intended as a repository for my project’s updates and everything that somehow relates to it.
