Video games tested as a treatment for dyslexia

Video games tested as a treatment for dyslexia | Video games and Violent behavior related? | Scoop.it

Video games help reading in children with dyslexia," BBC News reports. The news is based on a study that found that video games could be used to treat dyslexia in children.

 

The results of this study warrant further investigation. However, as it included only 20 children, it is too small to draw reliable conclusions from, and many questions remain unanswered.

 

Previous studies have shown that action video games could improve visual attention. So this study investigated whether an improvement in visual attention led to improvements in reading.

Video games are good for your mental health, especially for seniors

Video games are good for your mental health, especially for seniors | Video games and Violent behavior related? | Scoop.it

Researchers from North Carolina State University asked 140 people aged 63 and older if they play video games, and if they do, how often. Around 61 percent said they play games on occasion, while 35 percent said they play at least once a week.

 

Those who said they play video games demonstrated higher levels of well-being. And the non-gamers? They tended to have more negative emotions and higher levels of depression.

"The research published here suggests that there a link between gaming and better well-being and emotional functioning," says Dr. Jason Allaire, lead author of a paper describing the study and an associate professor of psychology at NC State. "We are currently planning studies to determine whether playing digital games actually improves mental health in older adults."
