The Positive Effects of Gaming
This evening as I was wandering through posts on Google+, I came across this post by the Frugal Dad.
Now much of this is not news. Many of us have been hearing for years that gamer's brains are getter at certain tasks and that their are physical differences between brains on games and those not. Most of us are also very aware of the educational benefits of gaming, but didn't you know that video games were being used for pain management in hospitals? Did you know that after 21 hours of play a week, the benefits are outweighed by negative impact. I didn't, not until today, so I thought I would share.
The following Info graphic is worth looking at, so do scroll down.
