Just one more hour mom! Don’t you want me to have 20/20 vision?

A new study at the Duke School of Medicine found that people who play video games frequently absorb visual information better and faster than people who don’t. Researchers observed 125 students, some played who video games, and some who didn’t. (Yes, they somehow found college students who didn’t play.) Participants were given a visual memory test, and not only did frequent gamers outperform non-gamers, they also got better at the test much faster as time went on.

Next, researchers will study MRI data to see what parts of gamers’ brains allow them to do that. Whatever they find, the important thing is you can show this study to your parents and say, “See? I told you.”
