In Episode 4 of Meet The Professors, Craig Anderson (Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Director of the Center for the Study of Violence, Iowa State University), Brad Bushman (Professor of Communication and Psychology, The Ohio State University), and Deana Pollard Sacks (Roberson King Professor of Law, Texas Southern University) discuss the dozens of studies showing that children and adolescents who spend a significant amount of time playing violent video games become more aggressive in their thoughts and actions. The relatively new brain scan studies show that brain chemistry is altered when video games are played for long period of time, and permanent brain re-wiring can result, with attendant negative effects such as conduct disorder, aggression, “mean world syndrome,” and depression.
