Our lab recently pilot tested a study that looks at the structural assumptions central to a synchronization theory of flow. The initial results (reported below) were submitted to the Communication Science – Evolution, Biology, and Brains 2.0: Innovation in Theory and Methods pre-conference.
My research lab was recently featured in The Current! This is a fantastic piece that details many of the different things our lab is working on. My work is the stuff on flow and aggression resulting from video game use. Lab Combines Communication, Technology and Neuroscience: The Media Neuroscience Lab puts hard science into traditional […]
The Discovery Chanel hosted a two-part video series – Gamer Generation. While these videos are a bit dated, each still provides a useful overview of the industry, media effects, and video games research. Of particular note, Dr. Weber’s study Does playing violent video games induce aggression? Empirical evidence of a functional magnetic resonance imaging study is featured in the fourth […]
A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to attend a guest lecture by Dmitri Williams. For roughly an hour, Dr. Williams discussed the arc of his research agenda as well as some particularly interesting research findings. His research focuses on MMOs and how these worlds “map” (or serve as a surrogate) for the real […]
