                 Cognitive abilities are the brain-based skills, important for the students related to their learning,
intelligence, and thinking process. The objectives of this research were to defne visual perception
training model by applying the theory of motion objects tracking for increasing cognitive ability in
lower secondary school students and compared the cognitive ability between the experimental
and control groups after training. The participants were sixty male lower secondary school students
studying in the academic year 2015 at Assumption College Sriracha, Chon Buri. They were randomly
and equally assigned to experimental and control groups. The research instruments comprised
3D TV 65 inches, NeuroTracker, spatial ability test and semantic ability test. Basic statistics and
MANOVA were used to analyze the data.
                The results showed that the model of visual perception training program by applying the
theory of motion objects tracking through 3D TV, including Presentation, Indexation, Movement,
Identifcation, and Feedback. After training with the program, the experimental group had cognitive
ability increase and higher than the control group (p<.01), the experimental group had spatial
ability higher than the control group (p<.01), and the experimental group had semantic memory
ability higher than the control group (p<.01).The results can be concluded that visual perception
training program by applying the theory of motion objects tracking (NeuroTracker) was capable of
increasing cognitive ability in lower secondary school students.
