Check out these three interesting papers that we think are worth a read.

Why certain individuals learn faster than others 

A new preprint by Kowalczyk and colleagues offers an explanation on why certain individuals learn and become experts faster than others. This study highlights the importance of using neuroimaging methods to identify structural characteristics of successful or promising esports players. Kowalczyk et al liken their research to how normal physical measurements (for instance height or muscle mass) might be of interest in a sports setting.

Streamed vs physical esports events

This paper investigates the difference between online (streamed) and offline (physical) esports events, with the authors highlighting benefits as well as similarities for both approaches. The ability to understand the advantages of streamed events gives organisers tools to better deliver and produce events during the current health concerns and the mitigating measures implemented worldwide.

A nice overview of multi-disciplinary esports research

We think this is a good overview of the esports research taking place across different academic disciplines. The authors review work in business, sports science, cognitive science, informatics, law, media studies, and sociology to understand the current state of academic research of esports and to identify convergent research questions, findings, and trends across fields.

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very
techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m
not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
Many thanks asmr 0mniartist
