How video gaming can be beneficial for the brain

How video gaming can be beneficial for the brain | American English Phonetics | Scoop.it

Video gaming causes increases in the brain regions responsible for spatial orientation, memory formation and strategic planning as well as fine motor skills. This has been shown in a new study conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Charité University Medicine St. Hedwig-Krankenhaus. The positive effects of video gaming may also prove relevant in therapeutic interventions targeting psychiatric disorders.

Natalia Zhukova's insight:

I used to think video gaming could only destroy your sense of reality, develop isolation from society, alienation, even depersonalization and loss of identity in which the real self is replaced by virtual, emotions are inhibited and finally you end up with psychiatric disorders. This article changes my approach.

Thought provoking study that has found a casual link between video gaming and volumetric brain increase. The possibilities for advancements in video gaming therapy for brain disorders could be close with future research.
