— blending the mix

[worth reading] BBC News – Computer gamers’ brains ‘differ’


I’ve always been a huge believer in the power of games to improve not only reasoning but also hand-eye coordination. One area i’d not considered was the dependency on the constant rewards (core to gaming theory) – which, surely, would end up becoming a transferable dependency on frequent rewards away from the machine.

Is this why we all are so giving of ourselves on social networks – because we so frequently receive “rewards” from our peers?
