Television and Social Behavior; Reports and Papers, Volume V: Television's Effects: Further Explorations.
Comstock, George A., Ed.; And Others
The studies in this fifth volume of technical reports to the Scientific Advisory Committee on Television and Social Behavior explore the role of mediated aggression and violence on relevant human behaviors in some new and interesting ways. The volume begins with an overview of the studies, presenting a statement of the principal questions asked, an overview of the main variables and methods, a summary of each study, and conclusions. The major research areas dealt with by the different investigators include facial expressions as indicators of emotional reactions while viewing televised violence, dream content as an index of certain viewer reactions to televised violence, familiarity with violence as a factor in predisposing the viewer to see violence more readily, emotional arousal and the mediation of the effects of communication messages, learning from messages manipulated in terms of violent content and color television, and black consciousness and identification in relation to perception of violence.
