Video games and attention

Researchers from Iowa State University have been investigating the links between video games and attention problems. Their study, of 51 undergraduates aged between 18 and 33, compared those who played video games for two hours or less a week with those who played for around 40 hours a week. Those who played video games longest had more difficulty focusing on tasks requiring longer, more active attention.
