Games more addictive than crack

Posted on Wednesday, February 13 2008 @ 11:05:05 CET by

A study by Stanford University School of Medicine researchers found that video games are more addictive than crack for the male brain:
Stanford University School of Medicine's Allan Reiss and his fellow boffins have discovered that while women can take or leave video games there is a part of the male brain which finds them more addictive than crack.

When a bloke plays Halo 3 part of his brain that generates rewarding feelings is more activated in men than women.

In the Journal of Psychiatric Research, which we get for the second hand brains for sale column, he penned that gender differences may help explain why males are more attracted to, and more likely to become 'hooked' on video games than females.

This is Reiss's second go at proving that men are from Mars and women are from Venus. He managed to prove that men and women process humour differently last year.

In this study he found that although women 'got the game' and were motivated to succeed. Blokes were a lot more interested.
