Marc and his co-workers wished to investigate any information that has been drawn from the study on the impacts of video gaming on the overall functioning and system of our mind. They assembled the information for almost 116 journals of science and out of these 22 were based on the study of alterations in the structure of brains and 100 journals have research study on the impact of gaming on the function and activity of the brain.
