Video Games Are Good For You!

A new study finds that playing action videogames changes the brain and improves visual attention. 

Researchers had people play either a first-person shooter or a three-dimensional puzzle game.  They gave them brain scans and had them do a visual attention task before and after they played the games. 


Those who played the shooter game had significant changes in their brain waves and showed the greatest improvement on the visual attention task.
