The Immediate Effects of Media Violence on Behavior.
Geen, Russell G.; Thomas, Susan L.
Journal of Social Issues, v42 n3 p7-27 1986
Reviews experimental studies and field investigations of the influence of violence in the mass media on aggressive behavior. Relates this research to recent developments in cognitive psychology. Suggests that the cognitive-neoassociationist hypothesis provides the best explanation for the overall findings and may subsume other hypotheses concerning media effects on aggression. (KH)
