+ - Violent media makes you violent: Neural Study->

Submitted by

Spy der Mann writes "Although research has shown some correlation between exposure to media violence and real-life violent behavior, there has been little direct neuroscientific support for this theory... until now. Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center's Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) Research Center have shown that watching violent programs can cause parts of your brain that suppress aggressive behaviors to become less active. The study did not show if this was also true with videogames, however."
