Thesis: Examining the Relationship Between Video Game Play and Cognitive Function and The Differential Effects Between Gaming Platforms

Michaela’s thesis examined the association between video game play and cognitive function in undergraduates and the moderating role of video game platform.

Overall, students who reported frequent video game play performed better on executive function tasks compared with non-video game players. Further, cognitive benefits are not only found in console/computer gamers, but mobile players as well.
