May 28, 2003 : Action-Based Video Games Enhance Visual Attention ... study by researchers at the University of Rochester suggests that in addition to making game players more aware of their surroundings while performing tasks such as driving, action game playing might be a useful tool to rehabilitate visually impaired patients or to train soldiers for combat.

20/20 Magazine, "Computer Games," Technology, April 1998- Two years ago, Dr. Seiller took his technology and techniques to the campus of Georgia Tech where he worked with the intercollegiate athletes at the Atlanta school in a specially designed facility.

20/20 Magazine, "Field of Visions", April 2001- Baseball's superstars--sluggers such as Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire, for example--use batting practice to refine their hitting mechanics. If Barry Seiller, MD, has his way, however, players throughout Major League Baseball will soon be working on their visual mechanics as well.
