Spence et al (2009) was interesting but it had a small sample and only used a pre-test post-test design without a control group. I thought improvements on the attentional task might be attributed to test learning.

comment What brain skill does Nonogram (Picross) games develop?
I liked reading your answer and references to the literature. Nonetheless, I'm sceptical of transfer effects from video games to general cognitive skills. My understanding of skill acquisition and transfer would suggest that transfer tends to br highly specific. Are there any particular studies that you think challenge this idea and show that computer game training improves a broad cognitive ability?
