National Geographic Found

National Geographic Found | Middle School Lang. Arts | Scoop.it

"FOUND is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public.  We hope to bring new life to these images by sharing them with audiences far and wide. Their beauty has been lost to the outside world for years and many of the images are missing their original date or location."

How video gaming can be beneficial for the brain

How video gaming can be beneficial for the brain | Middle School Lang. Arts | 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.

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.

 

Alex Simon's curator insight, December 8, 2013 4:41 PM

i totally agree with this article. i think its really cool someone researched this and found this cool information.

Ella Cooper's curator insight, May 1, 2014 8:11 AM

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.
