Surgeons Who Play Video Games Err Less

This concerns laparoscopic surgery, in which the surgeon uses a joystick to remotely control instruments that have been inserted inside the body. Apparantly the same hand-eye skills are required when playing video games. Thus surgeons who play video games regularly, are much more skilled at controlling objects using a joystick while watching a TV screen.

Well, a small break due to house/office work. Nothing much to write about either. Went to see the rugby sevens tournament over on Sunday. Torrential rain, but luckily they gave out disposable ponchos for the spectators. So wore it and sat in the rain while watching the matches. Nice fun. The weather eased out during the evening and was all dry for the final few matches. In the end, South Africa beat Argentina with a sudden death try in extra time to take the cup. Pretty engrossing stuff.
