Cheryl Olson talked about the Obama administration proposal that Congress fund a study on the effects of violent video games, as well as her research that questions the connection between watching and playing these types of games and violent acts. Topics included the need for more research, high-risk children, and links between violent video games and bullying, fighting, and other aggressive behavior. Ms. Olson argued that little connection exists between video games and violence, and that children can distinguish between real and fake violence. She also argued that children who regularly witness real violence are more likely to be desensitized to violent acts. close
