Impact of Virtual Reality on Young Adults' Physiological Arousal and Aggressive Thoughts: Interaction versus Observation.
Calvert, Sandra L.; Tan, Siu-Lan
Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, v15 n1 p125-39 Jan-Mar 1994
Compared to college students who only watched a violent virtual reality game, those who played the game exhibited a higher heart rate after the game, reported more dizziness and nausea during the game, and exhibited more aggressive thoughts on a posttest questionnaire. Results suggest support for arousal and cognitive, but not psychoanalytic, models of aggression. (BC)
