Video Game Players Brains Are 'Wired Differently'

I think we all knew this. What I want to know is whether playing games caused our brains to be "wired differently" or are people with weird rewired brains just drawn to video games? Maybe a little of both?

The study, based on brain scans from nearly 200 adolescent boys, found that that those who play games more often show signs of enhanced coordination between the brain networks that process vision or hearing and the so-called salience network, which governs our attention span.
