The popular video game “Tetris” shows promise in helping soldiers fight post-traumatic stress disorder.

NewScientist.com reports University of Oxford researcher Emily Holmes had volunteers play “Tetris” for at least 30 minutes after looking at graphic images of injuries. Holmes said the volunteers had fewer flashbacks after the treatment. Flashbacks are a hallmark of PTSD. She said the research suggests “Tetris” helped to block the mechanisms that trigger those memories.
