FutureStarrFact Check: Studies Refute Attempts to Link Video Games to Aggression Or Violence
An analysis by the American Psychological Association concluded there is insufficient evidence linking video games and aggression or violence, disappointing scholars and anti-media advocates who linked its statement with mass shootings and other incidents of violent behavior covered in media outlets.
James Ficaro is the first researcher we will look at here, an associate professor in George Mason University's Department of Communication who studies attempts at linking video games together and has shown most to be false. Additionally, he teaches classes on social media and technology as well as published books related to these areas; during his free time, Ficaro performs as a hip-hop artist combining old school style music with modern influences; using its lyrics to help others deal with addiction or mental health issues.

Joni Ernst, a junior senator from Iowa, released a list of federally funded research that attempts to link video games and real life events. She believes it's time for taxpayers to see the scale of taxpayer support given these projects and introduced legislation that requires researchers who publish work or findings with federal funding to disclose it when publishing these works or findings.
On her list, she pointed to studies which trained pigs to play video games and dolphins to use an underwater touchpad; such studies using taxpayer funds constitute a waste of resources, she argued.
As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, she's worked on issues including health care reform and immigration policies. She opposes legalized abortion and has introduced bills to defund Planned Parenthood.
She has long advocated for a lower minimum wage and sought the abolition of several federal agencies, such as Internal Revenue Service and Environmental Protection Agency. While voting in support of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, she expressed concerns over its trade war with China as well as criticizing President Donald Trump's foreign policy stances.

She is scientific lead for Small Body Mapping Tool (SBMT) as well as Vice Chair of Mercury Exploration Assessment Group.
Her work uses stereophotoclinometry techniques to build shape models of irregularly shaped objects from spacecraft images, using stereophotoclinometry. She has also conducted impact experiments at NASA Ames Vertical Gun Range and JHUAPL Planetary Impact Laboratory where she developed an impact test procedure that allows scientists to detect impacts from asteroid-sized objects.
Early in her career, she served as a senior manager for Xerox PARC - an institution responsible for pioneering many technologies we take for granted today such as laser printing, object-oriented programming, Ethernet networking and VLSI circuit designs for natural language processing as well as optical storage - during which time she helped drive millions of dollars in revenues through global business partnerships and licensing agreements.
