Video Gaming Associated with Higher Cognitive Performance.

A study that included 2,000 children revealed that those who play video games for three or more hours a day scored higher on cognitive, impulse control, and working memory assessments than kids who do not play video games. The National Institute on Drug Abuse’s Dr. Nora Volkow adds, “This study adds to our growing understanding of the associations between playing video games and brain development… Numerous studies have linked video gaming to behavior and mental health problems. This study suggests that there may also be cognitive benefits associated with this popular pastime, which
are worthy of further investigation.” JAMA Network Open, October 2022
