Submission + - Anti-depressants used against StarCraft addiction->

dotarray writes: Hope may be at hand for the poor souls addicted to video games. Recent research from Korea has shown that a common anti-depressant, Bupropion (sold as Welbutrin, Zyban and Voxra) can “decrease craving for Internet game play” as well as the brain activity triggered by video game cues. This is a drug often used to help quit smoking, to lose weight or to recover from drug addiction, in addition to typical anti-depressant and anti-anxiety uses.

And, with Korean scientists already on-board, how better to test this theory than to gather up a bunch of StarCraft players?
