Can Video Games Make You Smarter?

What are the effect of video games on our brains? Well, first off, there’s a big difference between a few rounds of Super Mario Bros. after your homework is done, and staying up all night and all day eating Cheetos and sinking deeper into the world of gaming. The latest research shows that moderate gaming has beneficial effects that target specific areas of the brain, as AsapSCIENCE explains. To get the full effect, you also have to get enough physical exercise, social connections, and education -in other words, a well-rounded life. Once you have your priorities in order, enjoy those games!
