Can Video Games Help Treat Depression?
« on: May 30, 2017, 10:23:49 am »
Might video games and so-called brain-training apps help treat depression? It’s possible if people use them regularly, according to findings published in the journal Computers in Human Behavior. The study showed that a group of college students who received these high-tech interventions felt more in control of their mental state.

For the study, researchers at the University of California, Davis reviewed survey results from 160 students who said they suffered from mild depression. As an incentive, the volunteers were offered class credit for participating. Three fourths of the participants (average age 21) were women, and more than half of them were of Asian heritage, followed by white, Latino and other ethnicities.
