University of Michigan Medical Center Gets $4.5 Million Grant to Study Games

Researchers at the University of Michigan Medical Center have been awarded a $4.5 million grant to study the effectiveness of video games and technology in creating more independence in young people suffering from spinal cord dysfunction and neuro-developmental disabilities.

While details on the study are thin, we do know that the $4.5 million grant comes from U.S. Department of Education's National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research and will be doled out over a five-year period.

Researchers will explore how mobile devices and video games can be used to develop skills in the transition from youth to the responsibilities of being an adult.
