Abstract

With the advancement of technology and penetration of Internet in human’s life, gaming community also has shifted to online platform like massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) instead of physical games, causing multiple health hazards including behavioral and physical anomalies. Diagnosis of internet gaming disorder (IGD) is an arduous task using subjective assessments and need neurological methods to be used in identification. The umbrella of symptoms for IGD overlap with other neurological and behavioral disorders like depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), thus can share the methods for their identification. This paper explores relationship between depression and IGD symptoms using electroencephalography (EEG) signals recordings. We determine the power spectral density (SPD) of EEG recording for depression subjects. Rigorous experiments are conducted to analyze the proposed system. Experimental results reveal the coherence between the power for the beta band for depression and IGD subjects. The results suggest that due to the comorbidity of IGD and depression correlation are cohesively predictive.
