Neuroscience meets entertainment as the very first "action film for the mind," MindGamers, is shown in movie theaters across the U.S. During the film, audience members wear cognition headbands that use cloud technology to capture the cognition state of participants in real time. An image of the mass mind-state and audience Q&A will follow the film, and be broadcast to all participating theaters. Note that only the Regal LA LIVE theater will have headbands for audience members, but other theaters across the city will be participating without them (check the website for a theater near you).
