If you play video games, your brain often changes - the more of the so-called gray mass in the brain's hippocampus, the healthier the thought. The smaller of them, the higher the risk of developing a heart disease.
The computer game League of Legends is a phenomenon:
The computer game "League of Legends" is a phenomenon: about 100 million people around the world play it, regularly "LoL", as it is said among connoisseurs. The game where normally two teams with five members compete against each other. The rules are complex and winning against other players requires strategic thinking.
Research confirms many a positive effect:
The study was published in mid-November 2017 by the University of York in England in the journal Plos One. Whether the players got smarter through the hours in front of the screen or if it simply helps smarter players in the league cannot be answered, psychologist Alexander Wade says:
We'll bet on that later.
Video games are a common pastime for today's young people. Research on the effects of computer games is also flourishing and producing hundreds of studies each year. They want to know how the brain and behavior are affected by this mass phenomenon.
Contrary to popular belief, the results usually lead to computer games that improve the brain functions involved. It is clear that many games do not improve the whole IQ but improve individual brain functions.
Only later did researchers show the positive effects of gaming. Those who play regularly for an hour are better at quickly understanding situations, generating new knowledge and classifying what they have learned in categories.
The reason for this is increased activity in the hippocampus, an area that is important for learning and that can be trained through computer games. But through excessive gambling, on average fourteen hours a week, the so-called gray brain matter of the players suffers - reduced in places. This is in the anterior cerebral cortex, which belongs to the anterior lobe responsible for higher tasks. The more exaggerated her game was, the greater the loss.
Just, what does that mean? The volume of the gray matter in which the nerve cells in the bark sit varies greatly over the course of life and depends on a number of factors - it is difficult to say whether a change is good or bad.
One thing is certain: If you spend a lot of time on the screen, you do not have enough time for other things. Neuroscientist Daphne Bavelier from the University of Geneva compares computer games with red wine:
It's a shame in large numbers. He may even have had moderate health benefits.
