Hooked on games
Just leaving a link here, for the Norwegian readers: Hekta på dataspill at forskning.no. It is an old article (dec 2003) about media coverage of research on computer games. A Danish report said that games might be positive and help develop children's creativity, but the Norwegian media only cared about printing the opinions of a brain-researcher who claimed that playing games releases dopamin, a drub more addictive than heroin, making children addicted to playing. Some links, in Danish and Norwegian, at the bottom of the article.
