    And here we have it. A scientific study that shows that exposure to media violence does influence the aggressive behaviour in people. Moreoever, already short exposure creates changes in the brain.

    This effect may be part of a broad mechanism that can link exposure to violent media with the emergence or increased likelihood of aggressive behavior. Given the complex nature of aggression, however, it should not be taken as the complete mechanism itself.
