Moral panics...they're like buses. Nothing for ages then along come two or three. Just logged in to my yahoo account and I saw this headline link: Violent video games harm the brain. Ah, a great deal of information there to help me make sense of this study and how I should make an informed judgment on what this academic claims and what it means for those championing games and learning.
Found this link a few minutes later on dubious quality's blog. This offers a much more detailed account of the study and a much more critical look at it in view of an interview that the author had with Newsweek.
