    Yeah it's quite simple - if you are doing something else you are not thinking about what you just saw. I'm sure watching a cartoon on tv would have a simular effect, maybe not as much though becase you don't have to concentrate that much to watch tv.

    I think they need to do a little more research then one study before they decide "that Tetris could be used as a 'cognitive vaccine'". I mean come on it's a little early as far as science is concerned to come to that conclusion; however, I don't doubt it has an effect and the next time I look at something graphic I'll probably try it. Explore it more people.
