SuperBetter-Cognitive Enhancement Game

SuperBetter-Cognitive Enhancement Game | Cognitive Enhancement Technologies | Scoop.it

"At SuperBetter Labs, we apply technology and design to empower individuals and communities to lead epic lives. Epic lives are about whole-hearted engagement with joy and challenge. They are powered by strong social relationships, positive emotion, and a real sense of purpose. When we lead epic lives, we choose every day to do what matters most, even when it’s hard for us. Our first project, SuperBetter, is an online social game designed to build personal resilience in the face of a serious challenge — like an illness or injury, anxiety or depression. SuperBetter can also be used to make a major health change, like losing weight, quitting smoking, or eating better. Our design draws on research-backed wisdom from the fields of neuroscience, positive psychology, and medicine. We collaborate with scientists, medical doctors, and university researchers, as well as thought leaders and philosophers tackling what it means to be human in the twenty-first century. By bringing together science and wisdom with innovative technology and design, we’re exploring how we can flourish best and achieve our full human potential — individually, and collectively."
