Example text

In the context of violence and aggression in the media, priming effects theory would posit that the antisocial messages to which viewers are exposed in the media will be combined with other information they already have about violence and aggression. The former will draw out the latter, increasing its saliency to the person and the person‘s actions. In this manner, priming effects theory posits, being exposed to media that contain antisocial content (which nearly all of them do in one form or another) will lead many people to think about violence/aggression, think about how well they personally can relate to the characters they are seeing on the screen, and consider Prosocial Content of Animated Cartoons 27 whether or not they wish to behave in a manner that is consistent with the characters they view.

In this study, we collected prosocial behavior data only for major characters.
