Christian Bäcklund
New project on computer game addiction

Computer games are a popular hobby, not least among many young people. Gambling has demonstrable positive effects on mental health. But in some cases, it can lead to an addiction. In a newly started research project, Christian Bäcklund, doctoral student in technical psychology at Luleå University of Technology, will deepen science's understanding of the relatively new phenomenon, computer game addiction.
