Last year I posted a video from the ‘Institute of Human Anatomy” explaining what consuming alcohol does to your body, which I found super interesting.
They have just now posted a video explaining what playing action video games does to your body, and especially your mind, and why you should continue playing them.
“In this video, Justin from the Institute of Human Anatomy discusses how action-based video games can actually improve cognitive functions.”
I figured many others would find this video interesting as well, since it seems the majority of visitors here come and read the gaming related articles.
Some things that shooter games improve:
- improve attention allocation
- higher spatial resolution with visual processing
- enhanced mental rotation
