To help children with anger issues, researchers at Children's Hospital Boston turned to a medium that speaks to children everywhere: they developed a video game. In the game, children learn to manage their emotional states; if they get agitated and their heart rate rises too high, the controls stop working until their heart rate falls below a certain threshold again. In the video below, see the game in action. (Read more about it in "Gaming the Emotions," from the January-February 2011 issue.)
