GAMES BOOST COGNITIVE SKILLS
Video games have always been associated with storytelling and escapism, but researchers are increasingly finding that games can help bolster key cognitive skills and even slow the effects of memory loss. A study published in Nature Human Behavior found that even just a couple hours of gameplay a week can help improve attention, control and reading.
“The effects are thus long-term, in line with the action video game strengthening the ability to learn how to learn.”
