How does it affect the brain? A chemical called dopamine is released when you are stimulated by technology so beware it can be addictive. Exercise releases this hormone too!
Beware too much technology will stunt or slow down or deactivate the development of the frontal lobe – we need this part of the brain for social interaction, emotional intelligence skills, multitasking, developing reading skills, and acquiring general knowledge
BUT . . . .. research has shown that the internet can actually enhance brain function too! It can help your working memory and decision-making skills
ALLOW . . some “downtime” so that you can reflect and help your brain to develop its thinking
