Video Game Violence

If you're shopping for video games this Christmas, you might be interested in this study from Indiana University.

Researchers there used MRI scans to test the brains of teens after playing either violent or non-violent video games for 30 minutes. They discovered that in the teens who were playing violent games, the part of the brain which controls concentration and self-control became less active. Instead, there was more activity in the part of the brain that involves emotion and aggression.
