“19 questions about video games, multitasking, and aging”: more videogame-study debunking

Just after I posted the last post, a friend of mine forwarded me a link to a blog post by Daniel Simons, a professor in the Department of Psychology and the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois. He wrote about a recent study on the effects of videogames on aging brains and breaks down, in detail, what works and what doesn’t about the study and its methodology. It’s a good counterpoint to my piece, so if you’re looking for more, check it out here: 19 questions about video games, multitasking, and aging (a HI-BAR commentary on a new Nature paper).
