More Frags, less deaths? Gamers who are Surgeons are better operators...

, posted: 22-Feb-2007 11:16

According to a US report released today Surgeons who are also gamers are more skilled and make fewer errors than those who don't play Computer games.

While this comes as no surprise to me, as I have always had a firm belief that games, especially FPS' are good for honing your hand Eye co-ordination.

However its good to see outcomes from the study such as this:

It supports previous research that video games can improve "fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, visual attention, depth perception and computer competency," the study said. - quoted from reuters.

At the same time they are also cautioning parents that this did not mean to let your children play video games for hours and hours.

However I firmly believe that children should play Computer Games / use the internet for 45minutes a day, (not Playstation, Xbox or WII however)

as this teaches more than can be fathomed or discussed here.

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!

Who knows! 

but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!

I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Mobile Devices
*general and specific ramblings
*Dvorak Keyboard

Mobile devices and more
