VIDEO GAMES

There are real risks [1] posed by some types of video games [ignorance, obesity, game addiction] for nearly half of "heavy gamers" who are 6-17 years old.

Watching the brain activity of a group of teenagers playing violent videogames and a group playing nonviolent ones, researchers at Indiana University [2] found some differences. "The groups didn't differ in accuracy or reaction time, but those who played the violent game showed more activity (brightly colored scans [using MRI technology]) in the amygdala. That is an area of the brain connected with emotional arousal. They showed less activity in an area associated with executive functions such as planning, shifting, and controlling and directing thoughts and behavior, according to researchers." Psychologists not involved in the study are saying it's "significant," which looks at the difference between this study and others attempting to resolve the long-standing debate about violent videogames' impact on youth.
