Creating Dull, Stupid Consumers

Screen-Based Media Associated with Structural Differences in Brains of Young Children,
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, November 4, 2019.

Bottom Line

" documents structural differences in the brains of preschool-age children related to screen-based media use."

Manufacturing Morons
"...children who have more screen time have lower structural integrity of white matter tracts in parts of the brain that support language and other emergent literacy skills."

"...include imagery and executive function - the process involving mental control and self-regulation."

"...also have lower scores on language and literacy measures."

Study: reduced screen time for young highly recommended for well-being



Screen Time, Children, and Cell-Phonyism

New study: reduced screen time for young highly recommended for well-being,
San Diego State University, October 29, 2018.


“...time spent on gaming, smartphones and watching television is linked to heightened levels and diagnoses of anxiety or depression in children as young as age 2.”

The Idiot Screen
"...after only one hour of screen time daily, children and teens may begin to have less curiosity, lower self-control, less emotional stability and a greater inability to finish tasks."

"The National Institute of Health estimates that youth commonly spend an average of five to seven hours (per day!) on screens during leisure time."

2X Freeky-Creepy
“...adolescents who spend more than seven hours a day on screens were twice as likely as those spending one hour to have been diagnosed with anxiety or depression - a significant finding.”

Screen-Kid Effects

Less “Well”
"Moderate use of screens, at four hours each day, was also associated with lower psychological well-being than use of one hour a day.”
