Dr. Delia Kothmann Paskos will discuss her research on impulsivity and video game playing behavior. Impulsivity has been studied in populations such as individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and compulsive gamblers.  Evidence suggests that playing video games may reduce performance deficits by increasing dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain involved in inhibitory action control.  Dr. Paskos will discuss her study and her results, which suggest that individuals categorized as high impulsive may be self-medicating by playing video games. This wine and cheese event is co-sponsored by CTE and OSP.  Please RSVP at more info below.
