3d movies have been a modern phenomenon recieved by movie goers with mixed reactions. A minority of filmgoers have even complained of dizziness and headaches, and previous studies have found that viewing in 2D offers no measurable improvement in enjoyment.

However, a recent study has made a break-through discovery that claims 3d movies may increase brain power. The claim came after a test was carried out by Goldsmiths University’s neuroscientist Patrick Fagan and Professor Brendan Walker of Thrill Laboratory.

Participating film-goers had shown a 23% increase in cognitive processing ability and reaction times improved by 11% and experienced a “brain boost” up to 20 minutes after viewing. The recorded improvement was five times of that of those who had watched 2D movie.

The study also recorded an increase in level of immersion in comparison to 2D viewers, with a 7% increase in engagement. Fagan’s cognitive brain tests and Walker’s brain-monitoring headsets were used to obtain information and the two believe that 3D movies could help in improving performance of surgeons and other professionals requiring superlative cognitive brain function, such as boxers or tennis players.
