University of Montreal study finds video game players navigate the
screen using a key area of the brain
Millions of boys could be at increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and
other mental illnesses in later life through playing action video
games such as Call of Duty or Assassin's Creed, according to new
research.

Scientists say players navigate the screen using a key area of the
brain called the caudate nucleus, which leads to loss of grey matter
in the hippocampus.

Previous studies have shown reduced volume in the hippocampus, which
controls memory, learning and emotion, is associated with neurological
and psychological disorders including dementia and depression.

The Canadian team said if action gamers have less grey matter, as
people who rely on the caudate nucleus normally do, then they may be
more prone to mental illness.

More likely they play these games because they already have the brain
defect?
