A recent study shows that men are more likely to get addicted to games than women. I think this is a surprise to substantially less than 100 people in the world.
The study looked at how the brains of 22 young gamers Ã¢â‚¬â€œ half of them male, half female Ã¢â‚¬â€œ reacted when playing a simple video ball game. The researchers found that menÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s brains had a higher activity in the mesocorticolimbic system.

Acquiring as much territory in a computer game environment is more rewarding for men than for women, the study showed. Reiss wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t surprised: Ã¢â‚¬Å“I think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fair to say that males tend to be more intrinsically territorial. It doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take a genius to figure out who historically are the conquerors and tyrants of our species Ã¢â‚¬â€œ theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re the males.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Might explain the jealous boyfriend thing, too, I’m guessing.
