Studies Show Gamers Have Faster And More Accurate Reaction Times | PS3Blog.net

A study recently released by Current Biology shows evidence towards gamers completing simple tasks at much faster rates than non-gamers, while remaining just as accurate, if not, more so. They took a group of gamers and non-gamers and showed them a set of randomly moving dots and asked them to determine whether the dots were moving in a certain direction/pattern.

The gamers answered more quickly than their counterparts, and were more accurate. They then gave the non-gamers 50 hours of simple training and practice on action games. After this, the non-gamers showed an increase in speed of determining the direction of the dots.

  1. I took at reaction time test in Grade 12 Health today.. i got best in class… 6/6… next best was 2/6

  2. I look at the picture used for this article and I’m just like why would you ever shoot a tank with a pistol?!?! why would you do that?

    And he is using his left hand to hold on the gun…

  4. he’s obviously aiming at the guy next to the tank. And he needs to use his left arm because of the position he’s laying.

  5. I knew there was a reason I play video games!

  6. I’ll use this as justification to my wife 😉

  7. Duh! I could’ve told you that without doing an experiment.

    I think you lie Sir….and I think Drake had one too many mojitos the morning of this pic.

    Well there are always people who think gamers are just lazy and there are no benefits to gaming. This proves them wrong. When you think about, being able to deduce strategies and make plans is a very useful strategy.

    This study also showed fish breathe underwater and that people who ate food were less hungry than those who didn’t eat. Geeze the money they waste on stupid studies. The united states military already proved this by saying gamers make better rov and drone pilots due to better hand eye coordination.

  13. hello there thanks for your grat post, as usual ((o:
