Summary "This book studies videogame addiction from a cross-disciplinary approach, bridging the divide between liberal arts academics and clinical researchers. The topic of addiction is examined neutrally, using accepted research in neuroscience, media studies, and developmental psychology, among others, to reveal how today's gamers interact with and become consumed by the virtual worlds of their videogames"--Provided by publisher
