While playing games a lot is often seen as useless, worse still, some people see gaming as evil, addiction, and perversion. However, over time, there have been many interesting studies on how gaming benefits many players for our reference.
A recent study by researchers at Georgia State University has revealed that gaming can be a useful tool for cognitive training in decision making. The researchers used magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) in this study.
Mukesh Dhamala, head of research at the Georgia State Department, said most youth playing video games for more than three hours a week had a positive effect on decision-making. “Gaming can really be used for effective skill development.”
The study included 47 college-age participants, 28 of whom were game players and 19 non-gamers.
Volunteers were placed inside an FMRI machine equipped with a mirror that allowed them to see where they were moving. The subject must press a button in the direction in which the point moves. (Or don’t press any buttons at all if the point doesn’t move), the results of the study came out. Gamers have faster and more accurate reflexes than non-gamers.
In addition, the results of brain analysis showed significant differences. “The results of this study suggest that Gaming affects brain development, including sensory, cognitive, and brain mapping. to develop decision-making skills. “
It is considered another good aspect from playing the game that many people may overlook. From the author’s point of view, I agree that everything in this world has its pros and cons. For example, playing games, if played but enough, will develop many important skills, but too much will have bad consequences.
