Computer games may improve sight


Adults who play action computer games may be able to improve a part of their vision known as contrast sensitivity, it has been found.
Researchers at the University of Rochester in the US looked at experts playing computer games that involved firing at targets.

According to the findings, which were published in Nature Neuroscience, the players had superior contract sensitivity to those who played other sorts of video games.
When the latter group played action games, their contrast sensitivity also got better, with improvements maintained for several months and, for some people, a matter of years.

Playing the action games made people better able to detect changes in shades of grey, even very subtle ones.
Another recent US study, reported by the Daily Express, found a link between use of mobile phones and computer games and visual-spatial skills in 12-year-olds.

Michigan State University”s research was part of a three-year scheme to look at how technology affects children in areas such as school and socialising.
