HOW DOES VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES AFFECT YOUR BRAIN? By: Yolanda Mendoza period.#2
DOES IT REALLY AFFECT? Based on the researches violent video games do affect ,in the last years their has been a increase on bulling, and more violence towards the women. It has an affect on the brain activity it has been shown that playing violent video games leads to suppression on the dorsal anterior cingulate cortex . This means that it affects the emotional response.
This picture that I have hereis of a study that the scientistmade from the beginning tillthe end of their research and it shows the effects it has
Some repots say that violent video games have many attention problems, poor school performance and addiction to violent video games. As also itincreases aggressive thoughts ,feelings and behavior. People and kids thatattend to school become more poorly in school, overweight or obese, anddevelop specific negative healthy out comes(stress, injurys) every hourthat a teen or a kid spends on playing video games it’s one hour less ofdoing homework, reading, creating or participating in a activity and morekids kind of become obese because of the lack or movement they are notdoing, unless the are playing dancing games or Nintendo Wii because theyare at least moving some part of their bodies.
Scientist have made some researches that some people become moreaggressive while they are playing games because either when they loose theycurse because they had just lost. For example some men had had aPowerPoint about violent and non violent photos and they weren’taggressive(they weren’t saying anything while they were looking at thepictures) but then when they had just stop the PowerPoint they went to playviolent video games and they were acting so aggressive and then they had tostop the players of playing the games because the men were about to hit thetelevision.
WHAT DOES IT REALLY AFFECT? This is a picture of aresearch that the scientisthave done ion a universityand they found that non-violent games affect more than violent games
Some people say that violent video games has a more effect on making kids and people to be more violent but is it just violent video games or is it onalso non violent video games? Some people say that video games are great because they can be helpful on reflexes and other people say that it just helps your brain on making/helping you more smarter. But
This is a picture of two guysthat liked a lot video gamesand one day in a high school (which they attended)that they shoot 20 people and killed 13 people and only seven of them teenagers/ teachers survived
PARTS IT AFFECTS! Magnetic resonance scan MRI of thehead computer enhanced and colorized: The areas associated with cognitivefunction and emotional control seemedto function differently after just a week of playing a popular shoot ‘em up
SO WHICH TYPE OFGAMES AFFECT MORE VIOLENT OR NON - VIOLENT??
