Online Games Not Good For Brains?

Recently the Chinese government has come up with a new set of rules limiting the amount of time minors can spend playing online video games in a week, as they are concerned that the children may be getting addicted to gaming.

Although gaming may have it’s advantages, excessive online gaming could lead to addiction, which may affect the child’s studies, physical and mental health, and may even caused a series of social problems.

🎮The human brain is wired to enjoy (1) instant gratification, (2) fast pace and (3) unpredictability – the three aspects satisfied by video games.
🎮 Internet Gaming Disorder: Recent studies have shown that playing video games can be highly addictive and that it not only changes how our brains perform but also their structure.
🎮 Playing video games creates hyperarousal that triggers the release of dopamine, which may make the addicted adolescent player agitated if the object is denied or taken away.

– Dopamine is a feel-good chemical released by your body when it experiences pleasurable events/things.
– When the brain is flooded with this ‘pleasure sensation’ through neurotransmitters, it release dopamine as a form of a reward system.
–  It’s the brain’s quest for pleasure that associates dopamine with addiction which is why it can be so hard for anyone to tear themselves away from a video game.
