Stetson University study finds no link between violence and video games

Dr. Chris Ferguson admits, when he began a recent study on possible links between violence and children playing violent video games, he thought the study would at least show some link, even if it was small. So, the Stetson University psychology professor was surprised when the study found just the opposite: No correlation at all.
Ferguson co-authored the research with a counterpart at London's Westminster University. They studied 300 British children and their findings run counter to many popular perceptions about real world violence and its relationship to playing violent video games.
