- Hm. The connection between video games and hand/eye coordination has been well established for a long time. But improving the time it takes to make the right decisions? That's interesting! It also may say something about the possible merits of those games that encourage rapid fire decision making that would otherwise be counter-intuitive (e.g. how quickly can you clean out your inbox).
Of course I have to assume that it doesn't help with the overall quality of the decisions that a person makes; just the speed at which they make them. So they also probably make bad decisions more quickly, too?Aug 22, 2011
