TV, video games not related to nightmares: study

Television and computer games aren't to blame for dark dreams about things that go bump in the night, according to a new study that finds no link between children's viewing or gaming habits and their nightmares.

"We found no correlation between the amount of TV watching and computer game playing and nightmare frequency," says Michael Schredl, head of research for the Sleep Laboratory at Germany's Central Institute of Mental Health.

The story is too old to be commented.

Maybe they should do a study about the nature of the TV and video games these kids are witnessing rather than the amount.
