I am reading through some of my back issues of Time (this one is dated July 16 - give me a break, I've been busy!) and they have an article on a study about addiction. What struck me in particular was this phrase:
In the brains of addicts, there is reduced activity in the prefrontal cortex, where rational thought can override impulsive behavior.
Seeing as how every time I play Brain Age, the good doctor tells me how much I'm using my prefrontal cortex, does this mean I have more of the ability to stave off addictions?
