Brain Boost/Better Eye Sight from Playing FPS'

Virtual Katz writes: Yesterday, in a report released by Brain Scientist, Daphne Bavelier of the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York; it was discovered within her personal lab and the studies conducted that people can benefit mentally and experience better eye function from playing a First Person Shooter daily. The presentation (which can be seen below from TED.com) combined multiple pieces of data about how individuals react during these games and the results were mind boggling when the final hypothesis was reached, no pun intended. The study showed that not only everything that we have ever been taught about watching TV, and the damage it does to your eyes; to the information spread about video games rotting your brain, are quite simply false.
