Do FPS fast paced shooters video games increase your eye visiona. I heard there had been scientific proof that's this is true?

Do FPS fast paced shooters video games increase your eye visiona. I heard there had been scientific proof that's this is true?

Not your vision: Video games may improve eye hand coordination and dexterity. The actual visual acuity is based on the curvature and length of the eye, and the general health of the eye. Using the eyes visually for any task has essentially no effect on these variables. On the other hand, intensive near visual work and computer use can lead to eyestrain and dry eye symptoms. ...Read more

Expert witnesses: I had not heard of DR. Samenow until I read your question last night & decided to read up on him. I still don't know that I have a good handle on the answer.

22mth son obsessed with nmbers wants rubber digits1-9 ALWAYS with him, wails without them, asks for number songs. He Speaks well. Is this aspergers?

Could be but first: research Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). On the other hand, your son is not even two, so let's not be too alarmed. Kids go through stages, and the stages change rapidly--the younger the more rapid the changes. Be patient and indulge him. What you describe is not harmful, just different. Consult with other parents, or if you are still concerned, a pediatrician or child psychologist. ...Read more

Vaccum: Can't assess this in a vacuum. A proper assessment should include a 24 hour recording to see how low you get during sleep and what your 24 hour average is as well as whether the low rate is due to any form of heart block (electrical, not blocked arteries). A treadmill stress test may also be indicated to assess your functional capacity and chronotropic competence. ...Read more

I read that spanking children gives them ptsd. Is this true?

I read that spanking children gives them ptsd. Is this true?

Not necessarily.: For a diagnosis of ptsd, the precipitating trauma must be experienced as a risk of serious injury or death and result in fear, horror or helplessness. So it would depend on how frightening the spanking was to the victim or observer. Spanking is almost never the best discipline method. It teaches that force and pain are justified out of "love, " but mild spanking probably rarely causes ptsd. ...Read more

The trick is to find a balance between between these two worlds and know when it is ok to act "immature" and when you need to act more grown up. ...Read more
