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

"...study 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."

Done Deal
"Screen-based media use is prevalent and increasing in home, childcare and school settings at ever younger ages."

"This study raises questions as to whether at least some aspects of screen-based media use in early childhood may provide sub-optimal stimulation during this rapid, formative state of brain development..."
