The findings were made in Canadian study by psychology professors Gregory West, Sylvie Belleville and Isabelle Peretz of Montreal University.

Published in PLOS ONE, it was done in cooperation with the Institut universitaire de geriatrie de Montreal (IUGM), Benjamin Rich Zendel of Memorial University in Newfoundland, and Veronique Bohbot of Montreal's Douglas Hospital Research Centre.

In two separate studies, in 2014 and 2017, young adults in their twenties were asked to play 3D video games of logic and puzzles on platforms such as Super Mario 64.
