Can video games teach us how to behave? | MedicalXpress.com
For the first time, the positive effects of computer games on  thoughts, emotions and behaviour will be the subject of closer scrutiny  by social psychologists. A total of three studies will explore how, to  which extent and for how long cooperative gaming behaviour influences  the personality of gamers positively. The project, funded by the  Austrian Science Fund (FWF), will complete the current state of research  on personality effects from computer games, which has previously been  dominated by studies of negative consequences. The studies have the  potential to offer significant ideas for analysing and reinforcing  social skills in all age groups.
