Mental Models: Understanding the Impact of Fantasy Violence on Children's Moral Reasoning.
Krcmar, Marina; Curtis, Stephen
Journal of Communication, v53 n3 p460-78 Sep 2003
Tests the efficacy of mental models in understanding the effect of exposure to fantasy violence on children's responses to and reasoning about moral dilemmas involving aggression. Offers a possible extension to mental models that is consistent with current theory in cognitive science. Suggests that the activation of mental models regarding violence is an automatic process that occurs somewhat independently of other potential mediators. (SG)
