Gaming Can Be Beneficial For The Brain

A new study found that video games can be beneficial for the brain. I guess that means we can all train our brains this weekend!

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 Charitأ© University Medicine St. Hedwig-Krankenhaus. The positive effects of video gaming may also prove relevant in therapeutic interventions targeting psychiatric disorders.
