Gamification and the Neuropsychology of Learning: Part One
The key areas that gamification affects in the brain are the default mode processing nodes, the ventral striatum and the dopaminergic pathways. The default node processing (DNP) studies are completed using fMRI, an imaging technique that shows the brain activity that occurs when we are not focused. Gamification progressively deactivates default processing by focusing attention. The more we game, and hence, the more uncertainty we have during learning, the more this deactivation takes place.
