When I’m playing a killer race or Call of Duty, my brain gets absorbed into it completely Virtual environment.But what happens to my brain when I come out of it? Is it different 1.2 billion

People Play regularly 99% of boys under the age of 18 and 94 % of girls closed their eyes on video games. Quote “regularly” according to game designer and writer Jane McGonigle. What amounts to an alternate reality for an incredible amount of time Brain.

 

A study from the proceedings of the Royal Society B that came out (I think It just surfaced in the journal ), Saw Introduces another perceived twist in gamers’ minds and thumbs while playing  Action Games.

Study found that video game players have a lower stratum nucleus – the The part of the brain that internally represents the external world. Essentially, games are not helping people create real-world maps, at least according to For this study.Action gamers are using something called “response learning” instead of more advanced space Learning.
” To simplify, imagine you are trying to go to a familiar place like a friend’s house Or your favorite restaurant: “Response Learning” is when your brain makes a map using the landscape; But “place learning” is an advanced internal map, so you can find out by distance And direction – this is the difference between adding lots of bits of information.


These researchers think that action video game players are developing their stratum To the extent that it can affect them throughout their lives; They can also grow A neurological disorder! Some news outlets have called it an Alzheimer’s risk, but it is huge Jump. Here’s the thing: For every study of sports, our brains are going to be negatively affected Too many studies saying the opposite.


A study in molecular psychiatry put  gamers in magnetic resonance imagers to reveal  how gray matter was developing in their cabbage.

They found correlation in the size of the entorhinal cortex, and left the occipital cortex / inferior Aerial lob is related to his ‘joystick years’ or the amount of time he definitely played Video game.

According to their results, people who play most logical, puzzle and platform games A larger anterhinal cortex, but a smaller one in action-based role-playing games. The anterhinal cortex works with the hippocampus to map memories and your life so You know when and where something happened and how it happened and what happened The day before, or the last time you met that person. Another study in that journal  used a similar result.
Games like Commander Keane and Super Mario 64. Science is saying, platformer and logical games are good for the entorhinal cortex, even Action-based games are not. However, that being said, all video game players have hippocampus and gray matter Overall plasticity added! Plasticity is the ability of the brain to adapt and alter neural pathways.
More plasticity is better! And it’s not just plasticity, a study done with chimpanzee published in Science The news last month assessed how chimpanzee brains responded to video games. After teaching them that play a co-operative game, the researchers found cells in the chimp The mind predicted Oops Chimp’s next move 79.4 % of the time! These chimpanzees understood what was going on in the minds of their co-operate players.
