Better (?) Living Through Video Games: Tetris and the Brain!!

image003

Two great Wikipedia snippets I chanced across today. About Tetris.

According to THIS (click) playing Tetris can actually improve the efficiency of cognitive functioning AND help people recover from traumatic events faster than NOT playing.

But…

It can also make you go crazy. (click)

We report, YOU decide. I just want to go play some Tetris now. The voices agree with me.

This is your brain on veggies/alcohol/pizza rolls…

This just in: Oxford University scientists have found out that individuals on a meat-free diet are six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage than those who eat meat.

(high-five to self)

The study, published in The Times of India (link), also links brain shrinkage to those who consume 14 or more alcoholic drinks per week.

(another high five)

Obesity and overweightness also were shown to be a risk factor.

(uh-oh)

Well, aside from helping to explain the mindset of your average vegan (ie: poor social skills and grooming habits, tendency to vote Democratic, etc.), this study impressed an important fact upon me…

Two out of three ain’t bad. :mrgreen:
