A UTMB Galveston study put the two groups head-to-head to see which would perform better using virtual surgery tools. All those videogames paid off.

Could it be that hand-eye coordination? This is a new world and it belongs to the young.

I find this quite fascinating. The younger generation have their interests on all those video games I find quite inane. It appears I am out of the loop because of my age. You go guys and prove all of us old codgers wrong!

Very interesting but I'm not at all surprised! It's no secret that all of us "older" folks need video games and mind teaser stuff to keep our brains young! Kudos to the young...and the young at heart!

Tried to send Shelly P another star - but the computer was adamant, I have to wait. As Shelly says - how wonderful it will be when they do things with video games and stop using animals for practice and research - that will be a VERY good day!!!

Nice to know that all that fun can be put to good use. Now, if they could just do something to replace those drones, and use some of that technology for a better use.
