Violent Video Games Alter Brain Function in Young Men

A study of 22 adult males, over a one week period, proves that violent video games have a long-term effect on brain functioning. If you played violent video games for more than one week, it is already too late...you are a homicidal maniac. frown Thanks to Edward C. for the link.

For the study, 22 healthy adult males, age 18 to 29, with low past exposure to violent video games were randomly assigned to two groups of 11. Members of the first group were instructed to play a shooting video game for 10 hours at home for one week and refrain from playing the following week. The second group did not play a violent video game at all during the two-week period.
