A study conducted in the US showed that children between 9 and 10 years suffer changes in brain using electronic means in & # 39; excess. Other studies have already indicated that the effects of & # 39; excessive entertainment on health were negative, but this study shows that could be worse than previously thought.

The study by the Institutes of Health USA (NIH) showed that children who spend more than two hours a day in front digital devices have worse results in & # 39; & # 39 tests, intelligence and linguistic ability.
Currently, a teenager can & # 39; & # 39 spends; up to six hours a day in front smartphone or computer, so the consequences are alarming. This study on the Brain Cognitive Development in Adolescence found that children can suffer from premature depletion of the cerebral cortex or crtex using & # 39; extra devices.
The cortex is the layer most & # 39; out of mind, to participate in & # 39; sensory to exceptions and is responsible for functions & # 39; higher order jagħmulna man. It is the party responsible for processing the information sent to the brain through the five senses. F & # 39; this connection, Gaya Dowling, director of the study indicates that reducing the cortex & # 39; often associated with aging.
Although it seems serious, the effect of & # 39; these changes in the brain in children is unknown. It seems we are in the middle & # 39; natural uncontrolled experiment on the next generation of children, says the researcher. To verify these results, analyzed more than 11 thousand children between 9 and 10 years, including in 2100 and three twins.
Each will be monitored until they are adults in & # 39; & # 39 21 center, research in the United States. The recommendation of the American Pediatric Academy to avoid these problems is that children under two years do not use any kind & # 39; digital media.
