Video games get a bad rep, but a University of Vermont study suggests video games might actually boost your kid’s brainpower.
Gaming can lead to better impulse control, working memory, and even improve behavior and academic performance.
The study analyzed 2,000 children between 9 and 10 years old. Those who played video games for three or more hours a day were faster and more accurate in memorizing information and controlling their impulses.
“While we cannot say whether playing video games regularly caused superior neurocognitive performance, it is an encouraging finding,” Dr. Bader Chaarani said.
