Video games activate “reward regions of brain in men more than women”
According to some highly capable dudes in the Stanford University School of Medicine, men activate the reward regions of brain” more than women, when they are playing video games. This would probably explain why my boyfriend is so hooked onto Halo while I’d rather watch Notting Hill. Cutting to the chase, the bottom line is that males have neural circuitry that makes them more liable than women to feel rewarded by a computer game with a territorial component and then more motivated to continue game-playing behavior.
