Cognition - Using RPGs to Enhance the Learning Process, from the Cognitive Neuropsychology Perspective
by Hawke Robinson published Nov 29, 2017 last modified Dec 08, 2022 03:00 PM — filed under: , , , , , ,
This could be applied to all RPG Formats in various ways, with different strengths and weaknesses presenting in each format: Tabletop, Live-Action (LARP), computer-based, or solo adventure books/modules. Ideally a mix of all 4 formats would likely have the most powerful effects. This is from a recent assignment for a cognitive neuroscience class. I only had about an hour or two to whip this up, so this is just a simple, quick essay for a class assignment. It isn't very well put together, because the assignments are only worth about 1-10 points out of 1,000, while the tests add up to 800 points of the total grade, so please forgive the lack of formality and poor quality. Hopefully you will still find the information listed useful. I hope in the future to write a much better, more formal version, but with my existing backlog, who knows when that will be, so I am posting this here as a placeholder reminder for me to hopefully work on it in the future. Even in this rough format, it may still be useful for some interesting topical discussions.

MMORPG research, some initial thoughts.
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 20, 2015 last modified Feb 05, 2023 12:22 PM — filed under: , , , , , ,
A few months ago I tried out a number of computer-based RPGs. I've dabbled with different ones over the decades and always felt they were flat, 2-dimensional, boring, hack-n-slash and quickly uninteresting. I thought I would get a more up to date view of the most popular ones. Here are some of my initial experiences. I plan to spend more time over coming months digging deeper of course...

Old Research Repository
by Hawke Robinson published Aug 16, 2017 last modified Jul 10, 2022 05:27 PM
This is RPG Research's older research repository. We are currently moving more than 3,000 content items (1 multi-page essay equals 1 content item) from this old site to our new repository at www.rpgresearch.com/research . The new repository is better organized and formatted, but it takes months for our volunteers to move all this content from the old site to the new site, so we are keeping the old repository available until the move is complete. All new research is being added to the new repository, no new research is being added to this old repository as of 2018.

RPGs, Working Memory, Thinking Illustratively and Elaborately
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 20, 2015 last modified Feb 05, 2023 12:22 PM — filed under: , , ,
In a TED talk by Peter Doolittle, he talked about two memory constructs, multitasking and working memory, and in this particular talk focused on Working Memory. This is something where role-playing games may support his recommendations in trying to improve how important things are remembered...
