Are Video Gamers Better Decision Makers?

Surprisingly, the answer to the question is yes! According to researchers from University of Rochester, they have found out that young adults who played action video games were much better at making quick and accurate decisions in their daily lives. It seems that these type of games seem to improve focus making you better to be able to concentrate on what's essential, says a PhD study coauthor, Daphne Bavelier. So, after all, your teen being hooked to his XBox does some thing beneficial huh?

If you would ask how long should you allow your kids to play, according to Dr. Bavelier, there is no hard and fast rule. But be sure that their gaming should not impede or interfere with their time spent with friends, academics and school activities.
