Correlation between academic performance and video game play in children (Jackson et al., conference paper)

Too busy, will write a few words then gone. Via google alert, sciencecodex reported a conference paper presented by Dr. Linda A. Jackson of Michigan State University. Her research team has found a negative significant correlation between video game and academic performance in children (more time on video games equals worse academic performance, to put it simply, but crudely). However, certain areas of academic performance were not found to have a significant relationship (math skills) or has a positive relationship (visual-spatial skills).  It should be noted that Jackson presented her study in a conference (International Association for Development of the Information Society), so I don’t have any info as of yet and I prefer published research in a peer-review academic journal.

That is all. I’ve got 63 more to go.
