BBC “Click” – Podcast: Violence & video games
Click here to hear the program “Click” from BBC World Service (right-click to download). This particular show was about violence and video games, where I was invited to talk about GTP. The second part of my participation starts at 19:10.
Introduction to the first of the show: “Just how damaging are violent video games to the developing minds of adolescents and young adults, especially males? A new study from the USA using brain scans suggests that there may be significant changes to brain activity following regular playing of video games. Tom Hummer, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Indiana University in the USA discusses the outcomes of his study.
Click is also joined by Angelica Ortiz de Gortari from Nottingham Trent University, in the UK, who is a specialist in Game Transfer Phenomena. ”
