Writing in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, they concluded: 'We propose that exposure to aggressive media results in a blunting of emotional responses, which in turn may prevent the connection of consequences of aggression with an appropriate emotional response, and therefore may increase the likelihood that aggression is seen as acceptable behaviour.' Previous research has shown that even cartoon violence can affect children's behaviour and last year, the father of murdered schoolboy Damilola Taylor called on the Government to impose high taxes on violent video games that can inspire street attacks.
Richard Taylor said he was 'saddened' when he saw youngsters buying games that had a 'negative impact' on their behaviour.
In the most comprehensive study to date looking at the link between on screen and real life violence, scientists got a group of boys aged 14 to 17 to watch a series of video clips while using scans to study their brain activity. The longer the youths watched the brutality, which included football hooliganism and street brawls, the less their brains lit up.
'Sweat tests' showed that they also became less excited by the action over time.

Mind games were used to win wars and bring peace between nations.The motivations differ from person to person, but the goal is always the same – to win.Whatever the prize is, using mind games to acquire it never ends well.Watching violent video games, films and TV shows really can make children more aggressive, scientists believe.And the more violent the scenes and the longer they last, the more normal the behaviour seems.
