The study of HIIT - Helsinki Institute for Information Technology - was conducted by measuring the facial muscles' activity and imaging of brain while playing a game. The researcher group found out that people experience similar emotions and have matching brainwaves.

As Michiel Sovij√§rvi-Spap√©, one of the researchers explained "It's well known that people who communicate face-to-face will start to imitate each other. People adopt each other's poses and gestures, much like infectious yawning. What is less known is that the very physiology of interacting people shows a type of mimicry - which we call synchrony or linkage."

The game that people were playing in a study is called Hedgewars, where they had to manage a team of hedgehogs and equip them with guns and artillery to shoot the opposing team. They players were assembled into a team to play against the computer. They were also playing against each other. As the game became more competitive, the more in sync were the player's emotional responses. Above you can see the screenshot from the Hedgewars game.

I installed a New Antarctic theme for that game. Is that theme goes into DLC?

There is no way to be successful without the right esports betting strategy. This gives the bets real support and purpose. My friend advised me to use https://wewatch.gg/ because there are a lot of live games and you can raise good money at these rates. With the right strategy, there is a sense of accomplishment and a clear goal that helps people place bets more consistently and hopefully also makes them more profitable.

Very interesting research. I love science and books. I also like to write, but for my work I often use different services . But of course, for me, the most important thing in this regard is reliability. There is nothing better than confidence in your strengths and actions.
