MRIs Demonstrate Link Between Screen Time And Kids’ Poor Brain Development

In the period of the last 10 years, a huge increase in the use of screen time by toddlers, infants, and preschool children is noted. This condition has forced scientists to study the effect of tablets, smartphones, and television on the kids’ important years of fast brain development. In the latest research, the scanning of kids with 3–5 Years was carried out. In the analysis, the brain’s white matter—a key region for the development of cognitive, literacy, and language skills—of children using the screens more than the suggested 1 hour per day without any involvement from their parents were found less developed than that of normal. The outcomes of this research are accessible in the journal JAMA Pediatrics.

The Lead Author of this study Dr. John Hutton stated, “This is the foremost research to document links between lower measures of brain structure & skills and increased screen use in preschoolers. This is vital as the brain is developing the most swiftly in the initial 5 Years. That is when brains are very plastic and absorbing each and everything, shaping these strong links that last for life.” Diverse researches have highlighted a link between watching TV for too much time and the kids’ failure in paying attention & thinking visibly along with increasing behavioral issues and poor eating habits.

On a similar note, recent research published in the journal Alcohol and Alcoholism highlighted that over a 3rd of the U.K. kids have a negative impact of alcohol consumption by their parents. While the researchers were analyzing the impacts of non-dependent drinking, they discovered a strong connection between the parents’ percentage of alcohol consumption and an increased negative impact on kids witnessing their parents in a tipsy or drunk condition. The study also emphasized the results of earlier researches which emphasize more than twofold possibilities of kids reporting negative experiences if the reasons for their parents’ alcohol consumption were negative—regardless of the amount of alcohol they consume.
