If a video game is on your child's holiday wish list, listen up.
New research shows if your teenager plays violent video games, it may leave them emotionally aroused.
The study used a functional MRI to observe the brain functions of teens after they played video games for 30 minutes.
They found the part of the brain, which controls concentration and self-control was less active in teens that played the violent video games. That was compared to those who played a non-violent game.
Experts now plan to find out if playing violent video games makes teens more likely to engage in aggressive behavior.
