10 Ways Gaming Can Help or Harm Your Brain

Are the effects of gaming harmful? According to experts, it depends.

In 2011, American Academy of Pediatrics published a study that found that depression, anxiety, and poor grades in school may be the result of too much gaming.
According to psychologist C. Shawn Green, in the same way we learn to read, use a map or play the piano, video games can and do change the actual physical structure of our brains. Green likens this to exercising in order to build muscles.
Based on a Queensland University study, playing video games is a better option than TV for young children.
Is there a right or wrong answer? No one seems sure. Despite pressure from numerous groups and the medical community debate that rages on, the gaming industry continues to disagree with those who cast a negative light on the issue.
