Brain cells victims of video violence (thanks Luka) is another article offering theories about video games shriveling your frontal lobes like a steroidal weightlifter's grapes, following up on a Japanese study this summer (story). You gotta love how admittedly unscientific some of this stuff is, with portions like this: "Mathews backed off from making any blanket statements about the danger of violent videos, but he said, 'I think this information gives credence to what has become a growing concern about what is perceived as increased violence among adolescents.'" Among dropping crime rates, if we don't really think adolescents are actually increasingly violent, but just need to address "concern about what is perceived as increased violence" it seems we could treat this by pumping a little valium into whomever shares that perception.
