 Study: gamers

Scientists have long established that human brain synchronization occurs during social interaction, and recently they decided to test this phenomenon on players of online multiplayer games.

As part of the study, players isolated from each other performed a common task in a multiplayer game, while scientists took measurements of their brain electroencephalograms.

During the measurements, the players jointly drove a car.

It turned out that at that moment gamers had synchronized frequencies in the alpha, beta and gamma ranges. In general, experience has shown that synchronization in the alpha and gamma frequency ranges leads to an increase in performance in the game.
