Sample text

For example, the theory posits that violent programming provides children with cognitive scripts (mental routines stored in memory to guide perceptions), interpretations, and behaviors that encourage aggressive behavior. Once learned, scripts can be retrieved from memory. Their retrieval depends on the similarity between the fictional event and a real-life situation, as well as on the circumstances surrounding the initial encoding of the script. When retrieved, an aggressive script may be reinforced and broadened to new sets of circumstances.

Second, when considering the influence of different media on adolescents, it is important to distinguish among aggression, violence, and criminality. The empirical focus still remains on aggression and not necessarily violence, let alone crime itself. The point is of significance. Several have expressed skepticism regarding links between aggression and violence (see Zimring & Hawkins, 1997). The skepticism is appropriate when considering, for example, the extension of laboratory aggression to criminal behavior.

Media research often involves experiments in a laboratory, although some experiments are held in more naturalistic field settings. This method arguably offers the best way to establish cause-and-effect relationships given that researchers may manipulate variables of interest while holding all other variables constant. This method, however, tends to permit only a focus on minor physical aggression, verbal aggression, aggressive emotions, and aggressive thoughts, rather than long-term behavior and violence or even criminal behavior.
