    This is already known fact. I bet that real life hunters, who hunt from childhood a lot have very similar brain changes.

    It is not like it is something bad or new, it is just that brain adapts to different environment and situations as person approaches maturity.
    And that modern civilization average human has close to no stimulation, just consumption of content from TV, there you can't expect any advanced brain wiring towards reaction.
    TV does exactly opposite thing, It makes humans to take no action upon receiving any kind of input.

    So question is, which brain is more natural? One wired to have limited reaction to environmental change or one wired to have advanced reaction to changes around?

    Some of this text makes it sound like they want to recruit these kids for surveillance training or something XD.

    Interesting article, but subject base for the testing was no representative. No females were tested, and only males with confirmed addiction to internet gaming were tested. This doesn't prove anything.

    I can actually somewhat relate to this article. Funny enough, being colorblind, I respond ludicrously accurate to noises behind me (more so then some other people).
