The average child in the developed world now spends more than 2 hours per day playing video games. The present study asks: (i) whether children who play video games exhibit enhancement of performance across a broad range of executive functions; (ii) whether there are gender differences; (iii) if there is a relationship between the amount of time a child reports playing video games and their performance on tests of executive function.
