No Comment 22 Views

Blondie drummer Clem Burke will give a special solo performance when he performs live in front of 200 people at the launch of a new research project to investigate the mental and health benefits of playing drumming-based interactive computer games.

Around 40 schoolchildren will also be taking part in an interactive session demonstrating the computer game Guitar Hero World Tour.

A new research project is being launched by the Clem Burke Drumming Project - a unique collaboration between Clem Burke, the University of Chichester and the University of Gloucestershire – to investigate how interactive video games such as Guitar Hero World Tour can improve the health and mental well-being of people. The research will look at understanding why such games are so appealing and how they may be used to investigate specific research questions. It will focus on examining the effects of playing Guitar Hero World Tour on child and adult obesity, autism, stroke patients and the health and mental well-being in the workplace.

The event will be held at The Showroom, Bishop Otter Campus, University of Chichester, College Lane, Chichester, PO19 6PE on Friday, 13th February, 2009 – 1pm to 3pm.
