When you regularly play video games, the brain shifts-the more the so-called gray mass is found in the brain’s hippocampus, the stronger the organ of thinking becomes. The fewer of these, the greater the risk of developing a brain disease.
The computer game League of Legends is a phenomenon:
The “League of Legends” video game is a phenomenon: it is played by about 100 million people worldwide, daily “LoL,” as it is known amongst the connoisseurs. The game, where two teams of five members each usually play against each other. The rules are complex, and you need strategic thinking to compete against other teams.
Research confirms many a positive effect:
The research was published in Plos One magazine at the University of York, England, in mid-November 2017. If the players have been smarter in the hours before the screen or whether it actually benefits the league’s smarter players can not be addressed, says psychologist Alexander Wade:
We bet on the latter.
Computer games are a popular pastime for today’s youngsters. Work on the impact of electronic gaming also flourishes and annually generates hundreds of reports. Over all, they want to learn how this mass phenomenon affects the brain and behaviour.
Contrary to common opinion, the findings typically contribute to enhancing the brain functions involved in video games. It is very obvious that many games do not boost the entire IQ but do boost the functions of individual brains.
Only later did the scientists demonstrate the gambling’s positive effects. Those who play for an hour regularly are better at understanding situations quickly, generating new knowledge and classifying what they have learned into categories.
It is due to increased hippocampus activity, an area that is critical for learning and that can be trained through video games. Yet the so-called gray brain material in the gamers suffers from repetitive play, an average of fourteen hours a week-reduced in areas. It is in the frontal orbital cortex that corresponds to the frontal lobe and is responsible for higher tasks. The more the game was extreme, the greater the loss.
What does this say, just? The amount of gray matter in which the cortex rest nerve cells varies considerably over the course of life and depends on a variety of variables-it’s hard to tell whether a shift is good or bad.
One thing is certain: You don’t have enough time for other things if you spend a lot of time on the phone. The University of Geneva neuroscientist Daphne Bavelier compares video games with the red wine:
It’s a pity in large quantities. He may even have enjoyed moderate health benefits.
