Playing video games improve brain functions in sclerosis patients

In the sufferers of sclerosis the degenerative autoimmune disorder invade the central nervous system, and eventually reach to the insulating coating around nerve cells. In almost half percent of all MS patients, which give rise to cognitive dysfunction, which is caused by damage to the thalamus. Similar to working of a hub, this area of the brain connects other areas of the brain, so damage to this area could lead to poor neural connections elsewhere, too. To reconstruct these connections, researchers in Italy found that video games were amazingly advantageous in just a short measure of time. 

Playing video games increase connectivity, it mean that these circuits have been modified or repaired, increasing the extension of areas that work simultaneously.The results shows our brain’s plasticity, the ease with which it forms a new neural connections over the span of our lives.The increased connectivity reflects the fact that playing video games changed the mode of process of certain brain structures.
