Video Game Players His Brain Thinking Faster
People who play action video games have the ability to make decisions 25 percent faster without sacrificing accuracy of the decision.
People who play action video games have the ability to make decisions 25 percent faster without sacrificing accuracy of the decision. The majority of game players who are adept can determine the choice and take action six times per second, and four times faster than most people.
Video game players may focus more attention on the six things at once without getting confused, while ordinary people can only focus on four things at once. These skills is not only in playing game skills, but it also skills in the real world.
“The violence game is often worrying for parents turned out to have a very beneficial effect on the brain. This game can improve the ability of the brain,” said the researcher, Daphne Bavelier, professor of brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Rochester as reported by Fox, Friday (03/09/2012).
Bavelier recruit people who have never played video games and train for several weeks to play action video games. At the end of training, study participants were sent home and not allowed to play video games anymore.
The participants were then asked to return to the lab every few months to examine the ability of sight. Bavelier found that the ability of the participants of this vision continues to increase, even without playing a video game.
Jay Pratt, professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, studied the differences between men and women the ability to mentally manipulate 3D objects. This is called spatial cognition skills are important in mathematics and engineering. Typically, women have poorer spatial ability than men.
Approximately 42 percent of computer and video game players are women. Prof. Pratt found that when women are few trained to play video games play a video game action, the gender difference almost disappeared. After 10 hours of training, participants Pratt brings her back to the lab and give him another test of spatial cognition.
“We found that spatial cognitive abilities of women increased substantially, and almost equal to the value of men,” says Prof. Prat.
However, the Indiana University study that used MRI brain scans showed that violent video game themed can alter brain function of young men in just over a week. Inter-regional activity associated with controlling emotions in the brain of this man down. Other studies have also found a link between addiction to games with overweight and depression vulnerability.
“Video games can change the brain. So is learning to read, play piano or navigate your way, all of which are found to alter brain structure. Powerful combination of concentration and surge of neurotransmitters such as dopamine would strengthen the neural circuits such as exercises to build muscle,” says psychologist from the University of Wisconsin , C. Shawn Green.
