Computer Games Can Make a Child Attentive
|by Sujata C|
Children can heave a sigh of relief this vacation. Parents can no longer complain about the action packed video games children play almost the entire day during holidays. Research has shown that games full of action and adventure, give a fillip to the visual attention capacity of the brain. Dr Daphne Bavelier from the University of Rochester, led this research that uncovered the benefits of action packed computer games that children love.
The study points out that only the fast paced, action packed video games that demand more attention from the player improves visual attention. According to Shawn Green a research team member, these action video game-induced improvements appears to be a remarkable enhancement in the ability to flexibly and precisely control attention, a finding that could have a variety of real-world applications. “For example, those in professions that demand ‘super-normal’ visual attention, such as fighter pilots, would benefit enormously from enhanced visual attention, as their performance and lives depend on their ability to react quickly and accurately to primarily visual information,” concludes Green.
