A new study by Chinese researchers using medical imaging has found differences in the brain activity of men and women addicted to internet online gaming. The study was published in the International Journal Brain Imaging and Behavior. The researchers from Renji Hospital, which is affiliated with Shanghai Jiaotong University, recruited 105 Chinese participants for the study, which had two groups—one with 32 men and 23 women addicted to gaming, and the other with 30 men and 22 women who were not addicted. The Chinese researchers concluded that men are more likely to become addicted to internet gaming.
