However, such repeated testing regimes place a considerable burden on participants, and with cognitive tasks typically being regarded as effortful and unengaging, these studies may experience high levels of participant attrition. One potential solution is to gamify these tasks to make them more engaging: increasing participant willingness to take part and reducing attrition. However, such an approach must balance task validity with the introduction of entertaining gamelike elements.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||JMIR||Journal:||Journal of Medical Internet Research||Volume:||19||Issue:||11||Copyright (published version):||2017 the Authors||Keywords:||Machine learning; Statistics; Behavioral research; Behavioral research methods; Experimental games; Computers; Cognition; Internet; Play and playthings; Psychology; Boredom; Dask performance and anlaysis; Executive function; Inhibition (psychology)||DOI:||10.2196/jmir.8473||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
