The NYU Game Center and Games for Change are excited to announce author and game designer Jane McGonigal is the first entry in the 2015-16 Lecture Series!

Jane will speak about a decade’s worth of scientific research into the ways games can affect how we respond to stress, challenge, and pain. She’ll describe how we can cultivate new powers of recovery and resilience by adopting a more “gameful” mindset, and bring the same psychological strengths we naturally display when we play games to real-world goals.
