TV and Your Child’s Brain – EXPLAINED

January 20, 2010

I looked at some research into how TV affects the viewers brain. I will try to explain it in simple terms (because I am rather simple myself)

Now, with that said, what happens when the brain reacts, then is suppressed – repeatedly? Well, over a 120 minute movie with the action, romance, and drama peaking and falling throughout, the brain gets a good workout. As an adult you’re used to it, but with a kid, they’re just learning to suppress these things, and what happens is they build up the feelings rather than suppressing them. So, at the end of a fighting movie they want to release that build up, and they act-out. At the end of a sad movie they might be on a downer, or appear saddened. Over time, they develop coping mechanisms, but some kids don’t and they act-out all the time, and as they grow up they act-out on a larger scale.

Think About It.

Wonderful Web site! I wondered if I could quote a handful of things for a school assignment.

Sure. I’d like to see your work if possible.
