I recently ran across a great article about the effects gaming has on the brain.  The best part of the article by far is this info-graphic.  This takes a less biased look at what we know so far about how gaming is affecting the brains of those prone to over use.  I have found that I get a better result with the young people I work with by taking a more balanced approach when discussing gaming addiction and its effects.  Take a look and see how you can incorporate the information below when setting limits with your kids or loved ones.  It looks to me like if you aspire to be an obese, moody person who is good at solving new problems, then violent video games are for you!
