From conducting for 7 and more hours with their smartphones or tablets, children you change the structure of the brain. And this can lead to lower IQ, poor memory and cognitive function.
Another study showed the whole harm children’s health with smartphones and tablets, but rather the time children spend in front of screens. It turned out that if to communicate with these devices, children spend 7 or more hours daily, their cerebral cortex begins to thin permanently. Consequently, such children are at elevated risk of deterioration of memory, perception skills and cognitive properties. Such conclusions the American scientists have received on the basis of brain scans more than 4,500 kids ages 9 to 10 years, which is being watched in over 10 years.
The aim of this study was to answer the question of the extent to which contact with the screen of mobile devices affects emotional and intellectual development of the child. It turned out that this relationship is more than obvious. Even if kids spend on the communication with the screen only two hours a day, they have noted the deterioration of mental and language skills.

The cerebral cortex is critical for the implementation of cognitive functions like perception, language, memory and consciousness, but it becomes thinner with age. However, children who spend a lot of time with different kinds of electronic devices, this process is accelerated. This conclusion is all the more sad that today to meet the child without a smartphone in hand is becoming more problematic. (READ MORE)
