Action video games have been linked to improving attention skills, brain processing, and cognitive functions including low-level vision through high-level cognitive abilities. Many other types of games do not produce an equivalent impact on perception and cognition," the researchers commented. "Brain games typically embody few of the qualities of the commercial video games linked with cognitive improvement."
After subjects played video games for 50 hours over the course of nine weeks, researchers tested each groupís capacity to learn. At the end of the study, researchers found that the action game players outperformed the non-action game players in the same exercises. The action game players were better able to multi-task, focus and retain information and complete cognitive exercises such as rotating objects in their minds.
