Ubergizmo: Study Finds Screen Time Physically Changes The Brain Structure In Kids

Ubergizmo: Study Finds Screen Time Physically Changes The Brain Structure In Kids. “In an ongoing study funded by the National Institutes of Health (via Bloomberg), it has been found that too much screen time can actually physically alter the brain structure in kids. The study found that in the first batch of brain scans of 4,500 9-10 year olds, those who spent more than 7 hours a day in front of a screen showed premature thinning of the brain cortex, which is the outermost layer that helps to process information from the physical world.”
