Study shows Video Gamers have Sharp Minds

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

A research study published in Nature recently showed how video gamers have sharper minds than those who do not play video games.

The actual research was done at the University of Rochester. Video gamers were asked to do several types of mental tasks - quickly count the number of objects they saw, identify shape locations and colors. They scored far better than non-gamers in these sorts of tests.

The study then trained non-gamers to play Medal of Honor. Those subjects then took the various brain tests, and scored well on them.

A few years ago, a British study showed that adults who played video games tended to be more intelligent and have better jobs than those who did not. They found that those individuals who played games honed their strategic thinking skills and goal-solving abilities, which translated into more success in real life. They also worked through aggression and anger in a healthy way, meaning that their normal work and personal relationships were less stressful.
