Games from the series Call of Duty, Unreal Tournament and other shooters help players to substantially improve brain function and done faster tasks requiring attention, perception and concentration.
This is reported in study by professor at the University of Rochester, Daphne Bevalier who published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
This was reported on the website Science Daily:
In a study Bevalier says that the human brain is always trying to predict the next action, regardless of what we do: talk, drive a car or perform surgery.
Scientists invited volunteers and divided them into two groups: the first for nine weeks played 50 hours a fast shooter, including Unreal Tournament and Call of Duty. The second group spent as much time in calmer projects such as The Sims.
Bevalier concluded that players shooters cope with the task better because the templates formed "on the fly" and makes it much faster than the others, showing a more developed ability to learn.
