Quoted: James Sargent on How Video Games Influence Teens


Dartmouth Now takes note when faculty members weigh in on issues of the day. Here is today’s “Quoted”:

“This study is important because it is the first to suggest that possible effects of violent video games go well beyond violence to apply to substance use, risky driving and risk-taking sexual behavior,“ says Geisel’s James Sargent in a Daily Mail story about video games and teen behavior.

Sargent is the Scott M. and Lisa G. Stuart Professor in Pediatric Oncology and co-director of the Cancer Control Research Program at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
