      The researchers discovered that increased video game use during adolescence was linked to a 3 to 7 percent rise in psychotic experiences. However, this association is likely influenced by several confounding factors. Notably, high levels of video gaming were connected with multiple indicators of adversity, including insufficient household income, as well as mental health and interpersonal difficulties at the age of 12. Previous studies have similarly found that lower socioeconomic status, male sex, and interpersonal and mental health issues are associated with higher video game usage among children and adolescents. Additionally, the researchers identified a pattern of computer use that increases throughout the teenage years, which was associated with a 4 to 5 percent higher incidence of psychotic experiences by the age of 23.

      Due to the neuropathy and the general situation of thought processes.
      This leads to a pathology of repetitiveness that creates rout thinking and channeling that produces a biochemical response.
      Repeatedly seeing the combat and highly violent actions leave those redundant stimulus and gratification centers rewarded.
