Tetris increases hippocampal volume

Posted by Hugh on September 29, 2023, at 12:16:57

Reduced hippocampal volumes have been linked to depression, anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, schizophrenia.

"Reduced hippocampal volumes are probably the most frequently reported structural neuroimaging finding associated with major depressive disorder (MDD). Reduced hippocampal volumes were consistently reported in subjects affected by childhood maltreatment."

Playing the computer game Tetris on a regular basis increases hippocampal volume. At least three studies have shown that playing Tetris for 15 minutes after experiencing a traumatic event helps to prevent PTSD. And playing Tetris helps to alleviate existing cases of PTSD, depression and anxiety.

I've started playing Tetris daily at this website:

Studies about using Tetris to prevent PTSD:

"Playing Tetris was correlated with increases in hippocampal volume, and hippocampal increases were correlated with continued reduction of PTSD, depression and anxiety symptoms between completion of therapy and 6-month follow-up. As such, Tetris playing may ensure that a wider range of symptom improvements are maintained after therapy, through increases in hippocampal volume."
