comment What brain skill does Nonogram (Picross) games develop?
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?

@Artem I agree with your sentiment. I guess I have a fascination in taking controversial opinion pieces and identifying the subset of claims made that are amenable to scientific testing and seeing what science says about those claims.

@what Thanks for the Lewak reference. I guess the degree to which women are concerned about status in spouse selection is an empirical question. It would be interesting to see how concern for status varies between men and women and whether it has changed over the last 50 years or so.
