The Mindsport Research Network aims to build multiple experimental frameworks for understanding human strategic thinking in mind sports. Research will extend not only to understanding the intuitive thinking process of outstanding competitors, but also to the potential educational, emotional, intellectual and economic benefits for students in mind sport cooperation and competition.
Strategic games express the approach and metaphorical framework that informs strategic thinking in the cultures that play each game. Quintessential mind sports include GO, Chess, Bridge, and Poker. The concept extends to the mental component of all strategic games.
The Mindsport Research Network invites connection with research centers at other universities pursuing research grounded in the leading strategic games of their culture. The Mindsport Research Network facilitates collaboration between participating academic centers and world-class mind sport players from world cultures.
