Your short paper should address the following elements:
a) take a clear position as to whether gaming use has a positive or negative impact on attentional skills and why,
b) if your position was positive what clinical applications can gaming have to enhance attention in individuals who struggle with that cognitive skill? If your position was negative, what can be done to counter this effect?
c) must contain the description of at least one research study that investigates and demonstrates the impact of gaming on attentional skills.
You must use at least 4 credible sources. If needed, visit the Albizu Library Database Index. For the selection of your source, use PsycINFO or PsycARTICLES. Your articles MUST be:

The articles MUST be of standard length (do not use a brief report or an abstract)
At least one (1) of the articles MUST contain a research study that was conducted (e.g. have Methods and Results sections)
DO NOT use Wikipedia or blogs as sources
