Neurophysiological Markers of Internet Gaming Disorder: A Literature Review of Electroencephalography Studies

Pathological online gaming is a relatively newer psychiatric disorder. It is the second behavioral addiction (after internet gambling disorder) included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of

Slow-Wave EEG Activity Correlates with Impaired Inhibitory Control in Internet Addiction Disorder

The results suggest that the frontal slow-wave EEG activity may serve as a neurophysiological marker of IAD, helping to understand the underlying neural mechanisms of inhibitory control deficits in IAD and point to possible interventions.

Resting-state EEG, Substance use and Abstinence After Chronic use: A Systematic Review

Resting-state EEG reflects intrinsic brain activity and its alteration represents changes in cognition that are related to neuropathology. Thereby, it provides a way of revealing the neurocognitive

Differential resting‐state neurophysiological activity associated with game usage patterns and genres in Internet gaming disorder

It is suggested that the underlying neurophysiological networks in IGD differ according to game usage patterns and genre, which may be associated with the inhibition of behavioural changes.

Enhanced resting-state EEG source functional connectivity within the default mode and reward-salience networks in internet gaming disorder

Hyper-connectivities within the DMN and RSN may be considered potential state markers associated with symptom severity and gaming time in IGD.

Emotion Regulation Choice in Internet Addiction: Less Reappraisal, Lower Frontal Alpha Asymmetry

It is suggested that IA alters individuals' patterns of emotion regulation choice and impairs frontal activities, causing difficulties in emotion regulation.

Objectivity and Subjectivity in Games: Understanding Engagement and Addiction Mechanism

It was found that momentum conservation provides new engagement measures while energy conservation provides the necessary components of understanding the addiction mechanism in the game-playing context.

A systematic review of the impact of COVID-19 on the game addiction of children and adolescents

Background During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is reported that children and adolescents who are socially isolated experience high levels of stress and various mental health problems. At present, little

The literature has long highlighted the benefits of sport, but too much sport could indicate a dependence without a substance, namely exercise dependence. The literature has only recently



Neurophysiological features of Internet gaming disorder and alcohol use disorder: a resting-state EEG study

The current findings suggest that lower absolute beta power can be used as a potential trait marker of IGD, and higher absolute power in the delta band may be a susceptibility marker for AUD.

Systematic review of the utility of functional MRI to investigate internet addiction disorder: recent updates on resting state and task-based fMRI

Introduction: Internet addiction disorder (IAD) particularly the internet gaming disorder (IGD) is recognized as a type of addiction similar to substance abuse. This addiction carries similar social

Internet and Gaming Addiction: A Systematic Literature Review of Neuroimaging Studies

Empirical studies to date that used neuroimaging techniques to shed light upon the emerging mental health problem of Internet and gaming addiction from a neuroscientific perspective are identified and shown to provide compelling evidence for the similarities between different types of addictions.

Neural connectivity in Internet gaming disorder and alcohol use disorder: A resting-state EEG coherence study

It is indicated that patients with IGD and AUD exhibit different neurophysiological patterns of brain connectivity and that an increase in the fast phasic synchrony of gamma coherence might be a core neurophysiology feature of IGD.

Neurobiological Correlates in Internet Gaming Disorder: A Systematic Literature Review

The included studies suggest that compared to healthy controls, gaming addicts have poorer response-inhibition and emotion regulation, impaired prefrontal cortex functioning and cognitive control, poorer working memory and decision-making capabilities, decreased visual and auditory functioning, and a deficiency in their neuronal reward system.

Differential resting-state EEG patterns associated with comorbid depression in Internet addiction

Resting-state beta and gamma activity in Internet addiction.

Associations between prospective symptom changes and slow-wave activity in patients with Internet gaming disorder

It is demonstrated that increased slow-wave activity represented a state neurophysiological marker in IGD patients and suggested that increased theta activity at baseline may be a favorable prognostic marker for this population.

Psychometric Assessment of Internet Gaming Disorder in Neuroimaging Studies: A Systematic Review

A systematic review of some of the methodological and assessment characteristics in neuroimaging studies that have been published from May 2013 to January 2016 and that have assessed IGD whilst also having used a neuroim imaging technique to gather neurobiological evidence of this potential disorder concluded that research on IGD using neuroimaged techniques is on the rise.

Resting-state EEG activity related to impulsivity in gambling disorder

The results suggest different EEG patterns among GD patients according to the degree of impulsivity, raising the possibility of neurophysiological objective features in GD and helping clinicians in treating GD patients with impulsive features.
